Lakeside Park Exploratory Committee Closes In On Final Recommendations

The Lakeside Park Exploratory Committee is getting closer to its final recommendations for the Fond du Lac City Council. Committee Chairperson Dr. John Short (pictured) says their members have been committed to their role in making recommendations about the use of Lakeside Park. He says before they met this week they already had 50 different ideas and were narrowing them down. He says they needed to make decisions on the impact of the ideas, whether it would be easy or difficult to implement, and what the potential cost might be. Dr. Short says they really have been comprehensive in completing their task. He says they looked at what other communities have done, did surveys, had visioning exercises and came up with their ideas. He says not everything can be adopted right away, but they are good ideas. The committee is supposed to give its recommendations to the Council next month.
