Prosperous Boat Launch Replacement Mock Up:

The proposed upgrades will include the existing boat ramp and dock being removed and replaced with a new structure a few meters to the south. The new ramps will extend further into the water and a new dock will be placed in between two single boat ramps.

Prelude Lake Boat Launch Replacement Mock Up:

The proposed improvements will include the expansion of the existing breakwater to provide a turning area for vehicles and trailers. A double boat ramp will be placed at the end with two floating dock sections on either side of the ramp. The existing boat launch will remain in place during construction and for continued use for smaller boats.

Construction could begin as early as winter 2018-19.
