& Yards Improvements.
Are We Expanding? Well Yes!
In the fall of 2020, the Parks and Recreation
Division of the City of Sault Ste Marie, made road improvements for Bellevue
Park. In doing so has changed the Lake Street south end roadway entrance to
the park's waterfront. The new entrance extends Lake Street further south
and then curves alongside of the Algoma Sailing Club property to the
waterfront. The Park has also downsized the size of its work compound for
recycling and storage thus freeing up land.
This is great news for Algoma Sailing Club as this
improvement has expanded greatly increased (doubled) the size of our
property that we can now use. All the old fencing and ASC Signage were
removed by the city and new fencing with a new gate will be soon installed.
The Masts Racks were relocated, and the 2020 crane haul out made use of this
new area by placing boat within, freeing up space along the waters edge,
allowing for even more boats to be winter stored in the future.
To better our clubhouse and keep it looking prime,
in the fall of 2019 we saw allot of activity, as new siding was applied to
the building walls, and the upper deck was completed. and the roof re-shingled.
In addition, each year, one of the docks is usually
scheduled for maintenance or a rebuild to ensure the reliability and for
future growth of new members.
