Coun­cil talks new pier for Lake­view Park

The Morning Journal (Lorain, OH) - - ICYMI -

A new pier could be in the works for Lo­rain’s Lake­view Park.

Lo­rain Ro­tary Club, work­ing with the Lo­rain Pol­ish Fish­er­men’s Club and Lo­rain County Metro Parks, have cre­ated plans for a new Sun­set Pier, which would stretch out into Lake Erie from the west side of the city’s prime lake­front park.

If the or­ga­ni­za­tion gains the needed ap­provals, the plan is to raise $12 mil­lion for the project and build the pier over the next two years. If all goes well, mem­bers of the public would be stand­ing on it in 2020, said Ro­tary Club mem­bers Rob Le­vit and Ron Man­tini, and Tom Saltis, vice pres­i­dent of the Pol­ish Fish­er­men’s Club.

“This could be a project for the ages,” Le­vit said.

The plan­ners pre­sented the idea to Lo­rain City Coun­cil’s Parks & Re­cre­ation Com­mit­tee the evening of Sept. 11. Coun­cil’s Parks & Re­cre­ation Com­mit­tee did not take for­mal ac­tion, but com­mit­tee Chair­man Mitch Fal­lis said he will ask the com­mit­tee to en­dorse the idea.
