City turns down property adjacent to Waterfront ParkJuly 3rd, 2013 by Tad Sooter
Waterfront Park will soon get an upgrade, but for now it won’t be getting any larger.
The city recently declined to make an offer on a residence for sale adjacent to the downtown park. The city had a long-standing right of first refusal on the property, which is listed at $428,000.
City Manager Doug Schulze said the potential acquisition was discussed during a City Council executive session. Council members decided the property was too expensive and not necessary for the park, he said.
The 8,000-square-foot lot borders the northeast corner of Waterfront Park.
