Project Update: Lower Spirit Mountain Riverfront Park Site Plan Available for Public Comment
The Western Waterfront Park & Trail MMP includes recommendations for 5 public water access points along the St. Louis River Estuary, one of which is the new Lower Spirit Mt Riverfront Park. The multiple delays in the planning process over the last year have imposed challenges for other City Departments who has been awaiting the passage of this Mini-Master Plan in preparation for determining the terminus of the new public road construction of Kayak Bay Drive. The City’s state, county and private partners need to know, where does the road terminate? The project is now fully funded and must move into fully design to be ready to bid by spring 2018. In order to proceed, the City needs the assent of the Commission or Council on the Site Plan separate from the larger Western Waterfront Park & Trail Mini Master Plan.
Below is a link to the Lower Spirit Mountain Riverfront Park Site Plan that was presented to Parks Commission on January 10, 2018. The public comment period will run from January 17 to January 31. A final draft of the Site Plan will be presented and voted on at the February 14, 2018 Parks Commission Meeting.
The 10 acre site is located on the lower side of Grand Avenue opposite of Warwick Street, the entrance Grand Avenue Chalet, part of the larger Spirit Mountain recreation area. The site sits below the BNSF Railroad and is made up county forfeit land and private land. The site has approximately 1,500 ft. of shoreline to the St. Louis River. The site is opposite of Tallus Island. As part of the larger Western Waterfront Park & Trail Mini Master Plan, the Lower Spirit Riverfront Park site was reviewed throughout the process. Including:
