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.
