Some Sandusky officials recently flaunted a deteriorated, albeit salvageable, property to Bowling Green State University representatives for a rare research and revitalization opportunity.
The plan primarily revolves around rejuvenating the run-down Sandusky Bay Pavilion property.
Years of neglect have led to a warped roof atop the bathrooms, a contaminated wave pool and various other problems at the East Water Street park.
But a possible partnership with university officials, in terms of placing an on-site educational research facility there, could reinvigorate the area.
Students and educators could study the differing algal bloom toxins present in Sandusky Bay and Lake Erie, city commissioner Diedre Cole said. Cole alluded to a collaboration among Sandusky Schools, BGSU and the city.
“This could provide a unique research opportunity in Sandusky since we’re right at the mouth of the bay,” Cole said. “We look forward to seeing, hopefully, some sort of collaborative efforts in the future.”
