Waterfront Walk "Turning Point" Park Project
The primary purpose of this project is to re-develop the "Turning Point" element at First Street and Wilson Avenue into a new park area. The project includes the construction of a portion of the missing Waterfront Trail allowing users to traverse alongside of Lake Superior, the construction of a fully ADA compliant restroom facility, the addition of a safe trail spur so users can safely access the highly used East Dock Park, and creates a new area for public outdoor recreation with the construction of a new park area featuring a donated fountain that will be located directly in the middle of the "Turning Point" area.
This project will be re-bid again in January 2018!

COMPREHENSIVE PLAN UPDATE
It’s time for Bayfield to update is Comprehensive Plan and to celebrate all that we’ve accomplished in the past 15 yrs.!
The 2001 plan was extremely comprehensive to comply with Wisconsin's Smart Growth Law - over 150 pgs. long, with lots of background information in the required "element" areas, goals and objectives, and nearly 250 "action" items assigned to various responsible entities. In the last 6 months, all of this information has been discussed and analyzed by the city's elected officials and appointed members of committees. The Plan Commission has held several half-day special work sessions, and every city board and committee and Council member has reviewed the action items is was assigned as well as the maps relevant to its work.
In the near future, we will be presenting a progress report describing what’s been done, where we are now, and where we want to go. In summary, we feel Bayfield is on the right track, but we still have work to do.”
You can find copies of the City's Comprensive Plan, and various related planning guides, policies, and statements under the "CITY INFO" tab above.
