Work starting on Potawatomi pier and shelter projects

Work is expected to begin this year on a handicap fishing pier and a new shelter at Potawatomi State Park in Sturgeon Bay.  The permanent fishing pier off of Shoreline Road just past the South Camp Area will replace a similar pier damaged by a storm in 2014.  Plans originally called for a larger pier.  Scott Bader, President of the Friends of Potawatomi State Park, however, says the project had to be scaled back.

 

 

 

The cost of the accessible pier project is expected to total about $400,000. Bader also says the friends group is raising money for a nearby pavilion to aid with the “Run Wild” fundraiser each Fall.  He says that will allow a more permanent gathering place for the race.

 

 

 

Bader estimates the new pavilion would cost in the $30,000 range.  It would be open to public use year-round.
