PERRYSBURG — Council members weighed in for the first time Monday on a $26 million plan to renovate the city’s parks and give residents more access to the riverfront.
Representatives of council’s Recreation Committee agreed to recommend approaching the plan in phases, with the first to include only an all-purpose trail connecting Orleans, Riverside and Hood parks.
The plan, described in detail during a public information session July 30, contains many long-term recreational options, such as an expanded marina, high-adventure area, ice rinks and much more.
Residents during that meeting expressed reservations about the cost and need for much of the plan.
Monday’s discussion centered around the proposed trail, supported by many but not some nearby Front Street property owners, who argued the plan ignores their wishes and could result in damage to their land.
Council members agreed that the first step before installing any trail would be engineering, part of which would include determining any risk for property owners.
