CORNWALL – Move the Lamoureux Park bandshell, put in a bike share program and establish a wakeboard cable water park along the canal.

Those are among 77 recommendations contained in a new waterfront plan before the Cornwall Planning Advisory committee tonight (Monday).

The final draft of the plan suggests either moving the bandshell to another location in the park or changing its orientation. As for the wakeboard cable water park, that could be put in near Kinsmen Park and run by a private business.

The plan, which hasn’t been updated since 2007, follows an extensive public review and input from the public, which included three open houses and online feedback.

The total budget for all the recommendations in the 25 year plan is just over $24 million.

The consultant, Thinc design, will present the final draft during the PAC meeting, which starts at 7 p.m. at city hall.

While the meeting is open to the public, because it’s a non-legislated public meeting, the committee will determine tonight whether people in the audience can speak.
