Event Description:

Lake Effect Open House
May 17, 6-7:30 p.m. in the City Hall Community Room

The Lake Effect Community Open House will provide residents with an opportunity to walk through, review and discuss with the design team their thoughts on the preliminary design refinements for the following areas:

Lake Street
Since Schematic Design Approval, the Three Rivers Park District has introduced potential partnership funding to connect the Dakota Rail Trail into downtown Wayzata along Lake Street, with the ultimate goal of connecting into Minnetonka. The design studies will consider roadway design that incorporate potential enhanced bicycle facilities along Lake Street and the opportunities and constraints associated with these changes.

Lake Street Plaza
Since completion of schematic design, the city has completed construction of the Mill Street Parking Garage. With this facility fully operational, it may change the need for the Lake Street Plaza to accommodate parking. The design studies will consider alternatives to the quantity and location of parking, as well as the balance of urban plaza vs. planted garden/park type spaces.

Depot Park
At the completion of Schematic Design concerns were raised about the overall composition of the proposed Depot Park improvements with regards to the quantity and location of walls, and the size and location of the Restroom and Shade Pavilion. The design studies presented will represent alternatives that will explore a more traditional passive park space, with refinements to the size and location of the restroom.


Please note, no formal presentations will be made. Residents are invited to come in at their leisure to review the alternatives and discuss their thoughts one-on-one with the design team.
