BY COUNCILOR GILBERT:
The city council finds:
(a) The Lakewalk is one of the most used and beloved hallmarks of our city;
(b) The Lakewalk should remain open to as many people as possible so they can continue to enjoy the wonder of Lake Superior;
(c) The plan proposed by the administration and approved by the council on June 25, 2007, in Resolution 07-0446, known as Alternative #4, is workable, affordable and ready to implement, and is a sensible compromise between the interest of private homeowners and the public’s right to use and enjoy the Lakewalk.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the council reaffirms its support of the design approved by the council on June 25, 2007, in Resolution 07-0446, known as Alternative #4, and requests that the administration begin implementing the plan as soon as possible.
