A new pier, beach, and boardwalk planned for Bay Beach

Green Bay, Wis. (WBAY) - We expect to learn more about plans to improve the Bay Beach waterfront at mayor Jim Schmitt's upcoming state of the city address.

The mayor will be discussing a new pier and improvements next month.

Only a preview rendering has been released so far.

The project is part of grant funding the department received back in June for a beach, pier, and boardwalk at Bay Beach.

Organizers say the plans are still in the engineering phase.
