Perry Beach Project
In the 1950s, the Perry Rotary Club donated a section of lakefront to the Village of Perry (VOP) to be used as a public park and swimming beach.
Regrettably, over time, this asset was disinvested in.
As the available amenities degraded, fewer patrons used it.
The VOP, in alignment with the outcomes of the Comprehensive Plan development process, is working to rejuvenate the Perry Beach and has started working on a project to renovate it.

Why is this project important?
It is important for many reasons.
In a nutshell, it will help to bring “lake life” back to Perry, and provide an attractive venue for performances, events and gatherings.
A vibrant village with attractive parks, public spaces, and infrastructure not only improves the quality of life for current residents, and neighbors.
These characteristics can also encourage tourism, attract new businesses and even new residents.
