The new Eagle Tower at Peninsula State Park could get the go-ahead Wednesday when the State Building Commission meets. A first round of bids showed the differential between what has been raised by the Friends of Peninsula State Park and the estimated cost of the project to be nearly a million dollars. Modifications to the tower's requirements were made and bids were sent back out with the cost being lowered to a more reasonable number. Business Manager Steve Strucely is cautiously optimistic that funds can be shifted to accomodate the tower and that the Building Commission will approve the project.
Originally the Friends hoped the project would begin this fall but that is looking less likely with the continued review.
