Cahoon Park Lakefront Master Plan

City Council Presentation

On December 8, SmithGroup gave a presentation (PDF) to provide an update to City Council during the committee session.  

Public Input Meeting 3

The third public input meeting was held by Webex on November 12, 2020 at 5:30 pm.  This meeting was an opportunity to review and discuss the draft consensus master plan design that was developed based on the previous meetings and geological study.  A recording of the presentation and the presentation slides (PDF) are available for review.

If you participated in the Webex or have reviewed the presentation, please take the survey to provide your thoughts and feedback.

Public Input Meeting 2

The second public input meeting for the Cahoon Park Master Plan Study was held on October 15 at 5:30 pm via WebEx.  The meeting included break-out sessions to review and discuss several design concepts for the park master plan.  A video recording of the meeting is available for review on YouTube.

The full presentation slides (PDF) (14MB) provide background and context for the project, and the slides from the break-out sessions (PDF) (5MB) focus on the three concepts.  All of these concepts have several things in common:

  • An underlying focus on protecting the shoreline from erosion
  • Promoting access to the lakefront
  • A long-term approach to park planning

It's expected that the final plan will include elements from all three concepts, and would be a guideline for park improvement implementation over many years.

Participants in the webinar or those who reviewed the presentation (PDF)and plans (PDF) had an opportunity to take a survey to provide thoughts and feedback. 

Cahoon Park Master Plan Meeting

The City of Bay Village with assistance from an ODNR Coastal Management Assistance Grant is conducting a study to explore public access at Cahoon Park. The focus of the study is the portion of Cahoon Park north of Lake Road, including Bay Point, a projection of land immediately west of Cahoon Creek and the Bay Boat Club. The study is evaluating the features and uses parkgoers would like to see in the future, how visitors get to the site, and erosion concerns on the lake bluffs.  

A presentation and discussion was held by Webex on Wednesday, August 26th to review the opportunities and constraints of the site, and collect input in the development of designs for the space.  A video recording of the presentation is available for review on YouTube.

After the presentation, a survey was available to collect additional input and thoughts about the park.
