Eastlake Park

  • Stage II plans were submitted by ODOT.  The City needs to provide comments by June 1st.  Some comments discussed today:

1.      Making the parking lot bigger – currently 32 spaces.

2.      Curving the roadway and moving it north or lining it up with Liberty.  Mayor Moll doesn’t like how it’s offset.  It can’t be moved south because of wetlands.
