      Mattson Lower Harbor Park May See Fewer Events in the Future

      C ity officials are looking to reduce the number of events held at Mattson Lower Harbor Park. The Parks and Recreation Advisory Board is looking at a policy to set guidelines for scheduling events at the park. The guidelines would mandate one weekend off after hosting events two weekends in a row.

      "It doesn't affect any traditional event that has ever been held down there, we've never turned anybody away for that reason," Assistant Director of Community Services Jon Swenson said. "There have been times when people have called to try and schedule and we already had an event going on that weekend, that would be the only time we've ever turned anybody away."

      T he board is also looking at other spaces like Tourist Park and Presque Isle Park to host events. If the City Commission approves the policy, the guidelines could be in effect by next summer.
