The Sturgeon Bay Parks and Recreation Committee has decided to do research into constructing a new park on a portion of land along Egg Harbor Road. Currently vacant, the lot is in close proximity to about 400 apartment units. The committee decided at its meeting on Wednesday to look into what the potential costs would be for an urban park, a minimally maintained park that would have trails mowed and could be used by the surrounding community. City councilperson Laurel Hauser said any discussions about the potential park are not set in stone as of yet.
According to Hauser, the committee has a comprehensive plan that states another new park will be needed in Sturgeon Bay in the future. The committee will continue the discussion at its next meeting.
