Note: Due to timing of May 22nd ’17 CBPA Hearing Date and no presentation made by applicant to Shore Drive Community Coalition, SDCC has not taken a vote on what action to take in response to this proposal.
First Public Presentation of CCW on Pleasure House Creek is this Thursday May 18th ’17 Bayfront Advisory Committee Meeting at Resort & Conference Center 2800 Shore Drive. Meeting starts at 3pm.
Recent press about the proposed parking lot in Pleasure House Point Natural Area.
City officials told residents about the plan May 4 at the Ocean Park Civic League meeting. Ocean Park borders Pleasure House Point.
Some residents think it’s hypocritical of the city to buy the land for conservation and then destroy part of it.
Right now plans include a kayak launch, a pedestrian bridge, more trails, and of course the parking lot. Past drawings of the site included bathrooms and lights, but right now the city says the money just isn’t there. Julie Braley with Parks and Recreation says there are some misconceptions with the project.
This website is also a public record including documentation, news and more about Pleasure House Point since 2003.
Trees will be cut down on Pleasure House Point for the current plan that was presented this past Thursday at Ocean Park Civic League’s meeting in Brock.
Note: We’ve been trying to get all the detailed plans to share. Stay tuned.
When council votes on its budget Tuesday, it will likely vote to give $1 million more per year to address flooding issues. But the extra cash won’t go . . .
