Following the approval of the project application by NERSDP Board, the project was discussed at the Schroeder township annual meeting and work scheduled set. Site visits were made by the steering committee, township members, landscape architect, local contractor, and NERSDP board. Concept plan was developed and input received. The draft plan was revised based on the feedback. Then, large concept boards were made and presented to the community for further discussion and input, after which final plan and concept designs were produced.
Project components (shelter, ADA parking, storm/wave protection, additional grading, interpretative platform) have been identified and concept plan developed. Preliminary cost estimates have also been developed.
