CLEARWATER-Clearwater voters gave Clearwater Marine Aquarium a big victory last week in a referendum allowing the aquarium to negotiate with the city on a lease of downtown waterfront property for a $160.5 million new facility.

On Thursday, two days after the polls closed, several members of the opposition addressed City Council, signaling their intent to keep the fight alive.

Tom Petersen, who has filed a suit seeking to invalidate the referendum, said the tentative agreement between the aquarium and the city undervalues the 5 ½ acres where City Hall now stands.
