In October, 2018, the city entered into agreement with Osborn Engineering of Cleveland, Ohio, for professional design services for this project. Most notably, Osborn Engineering performed similar work at Public Square in Cleveland, Ohio. They have teamed with City Architecture, also from Cleveland, for a downtown transformation project in Cuyahoga Falls as well for reimaging of Sandusky’s waterfront.
Work has commenced and the Pier is scheduled to reopen in the Spring of 2020. When completed, existing uses will be maintained including fishing, boating and walking/running. Parking will be maintained along the water’s edge and at the northernmost end. New improvements include a multi-purpose building for events, upgrades in handicap accessibility, enhancements to the Homeland Security areas to preserve ferry service, improvements to ticketing, drop-off and waiting areas for vessels and overall beautification through landscaping and sight line improvements.
