A popular county park in southern Door County will receive some much-needed protection from shoreline erosion. The Door County Facilities & Parks Committee will meet on Wednesday to review bids for work at Lower LaSalle Park. The shoreline would be reinforced with riprap for the first 75-feet near the parking lot infrastructure on the north side. Facilities & Parks Director Wayne Spritka says the county recently was granted the DNR permit.
Another 75-feet of protection could be added to the south if a matching grant can be procured. Parks Manager Burke Pinney is currently putting out a grant request to double the funding and work to be done. Spritka added that the riprap work can be completed this fall. The Door County Facilities & Parks Committee will also discuss a resolution to acquire a four-acre parcel of land to add to the northeast end of Meridian County Park near Jacksonport.
