The five concept plans include the following amenities (previously identified by council) in various configurations:

The presentation by Winston Associates is the second step in the process of planning for recreational amenities on the peninsula. The two-year process that started with the 2000 Parks and Recreation Master Plan is moving into its maturity phase. Following the presentation over the next several months, council members will be deciding which options may be feasible, how the town might finance any projects and whether to proceed with further plans to develop the peninsula with recreational amenities.
