Ashland city leaders hope visitors will "stay and play" at Blue Wave on the Bay, a multi-use building they want to build as a gateway into the city.

The Planning Commission is meeting Tuesday to discuss the new Blue Wave site plan. Approval of the plan would move it forward in the permitting process.

Bob Miller is the interim Planning Director. He said the building would be located at the far west end of Ashland on Highway 2.

Mock-up plans show a three-story building on the lake. Miller said the building would house retail, a coffee shop, motel rooms, and apartments. He also said they plan to have recreational rentals, such as bikes, kayaks, and paddle boards.

Miller said they have plans to demolish the existing building on the property in March of 2014 and begin construction in the spring.
