That would be a great use of shoreline. I am biased, but I’d love to see an Ann Arbor Railroad freight car or caboose on display there too, to represent the area’s history 🙂

Should designate the retaining wall for sport fishing for the bank fisherman that have used it for years. I've seen many families hanging out having a good time fishing while heading out onto the lake.

As GTRLC has done with other projects, I trust there will be ample opportunities for community engagement in developing the plan
