Huron looks to enhance areas along James River
HURON (AP) — Officials in the city of Huron want to enhance city owned areas along the James River.
Mayor Paul Aylward tells KOKK radio that areas that will be examined for development or expansion include the old waste water plant site, Riverside Park, the old municipal pool and land between Sherman Avenue and the river.
Aylward talked about the James River Master Plan during his State of the City Address last week.
The mayor says the city would like to do the project in phases and gather comments from the public.
Huron has previously looked at converting the low-head dam on the James River at Third Street into rock-arch rapids to increase visitor safety around the dam. The area is a popular spot for anglers but carries a significant drowning hazard.
