Jordan Skiff – Lakeside Park Improvements
Jordan Skiff and Parks Director John Redman were her to present ideas to improve Lakeside Park. Ideas from the seventeen person advisory committee were turn over to Excel engineering for a plan. The main idea is a new pavilion at the end of Main St. The possibilities of a restaurant and a pier into the lake are on the list. This would be the hub of the park. Because of all the variables, this is on the 2019 list of projects. A splash pad would be on the 2018 list of projects. Other items would be a bridge to the West side. Viewing stations would be added for Supple Marsh’s. Bike trails thru the park. Add an ice rink. A number of opinions are pushing for improving the old pavilion.
