The city of Perrysburg has big plans for it's riverfront.
Tuesday, city leaders laid out a master plan for the public. The $26.2 million project would basically transform the riverfront, adding seating, new paths and connecting the community from Fort Meigs to Hood Park.
"They're stand alone right now," Brodin Walters, city of Perrysburg Zoning and Planning Administrator said. "If we could connect them, that would be great."
But not everyone is on board.
"I think it takes away everything that I think Perrysburg is," Katina Holland, a Perrysburg resident said.
Holland lives right on the Maumee river. She's not opposed to some development, but she is concerned about the size, cost and what it would do to the environment.
"We have a downtown, we have restaurants, the waterfront is something that is unique. It's an environment that has to be protected," she said.
Others see this as an opportunity to expand the community.
"Developing the riverfront is a particularly beautiful idea," Earl Campbell who bikes in Perrysburg said. "I think people need to be more positive about these things in this area."
The plan shown Tuesday evening was designed to show the public what they could do to enhance the waterfront. The project, as is, is not set in stone.
"I think the reality lies somewhere in the middle," Walters said. "I would consider it a success if we did something to our riverfront."
Perrysburg city council is expected to look at the plans at it's August 19th meeting. The public is encouraged to attend.
