This is a video of the second half-hour of Councilor Jon Denison’s Ward 4 meeting at St. John’s Lutheran Church on Saturday morning. At-large Councilor Noah Cashman also participated. This segment is entirely about the plans for the Ames Mill Dam, with a report on the latest developments by Dave Hvistendahl.
I blogged about tearing down the Ames Mill Dam back in August and there was some discussion of how a this area of the river might be suitable for recreational/competitive kayaking, similar to the kayak/canoe park that exists downtown Wausau Wisconsin and the whitewater park planned for the Mississippi River in downtown Minneapolis.
Watch the video, as planning has progressed considerably since then. Photos below are of downtown Wausau.
