Aldermen want to lend energy to road name PDF Print E-mail

Some Port officials reject Coal Dock Parkway, say street name should recognize We Energies contribution

    What should the road running through Coal Dock Park be called?

    Port Washington aldermen debated that subject Tuesday night, but they didn’t come to a resolution before their meeting ended.

    The Coal Dock Committee suggested the road should be called Coal Dock Parkway, but that recommendation didn’t sit well with all the aldermen.

    “The name’s horrible,” Ald. Dave Larson said. “It’s not very imaginative. It’s not very creative.”

    He didn’t like it when the city named the park Coal Dock Park, Larson added, noting it’s too similar to Kolbach Park on the city’s north side.

    He suggested the city call the road Energy Way.

    “I like the idea of tying energy into it,” Larson said.

    But Ald. Kevin Rudser asked, “Is that because there’s a power plant there?”

    The name would pay homage to the fact We Energies essentially donated the land for the park, Larson said.
