Request for Comment on Marina
– deadline for receipt is October 10, 2014
On September 10, 2014 TVA advertised in the North Georgia News, page 18A, their intent to take comments on the proposal for a marina to be located adjacent to the Hughes gas station. They also have the following information on their web site (http://www.tva.gov/river/landandshore/marina_expansion_chatuge_2014.htm). Although their web page identifies Chatuge, the ad in the paper properly identified Nottely. They are going to correct the web page. TVA is working to provide some additional data to us and if they do, we will notify our members with an LNIA BLAST.

Section 26a Permit Request for a Commercial Marina Expansion on Chatuge Reservoir
TVA is considering a request for a Section 26a permit to expand existing marina facilities and establish approximately 1.3 acres of harbor limits at North Georgia Watersports, a commercial marina on Nottely Reservoir in Union County, Georgia. The operator proposes to add fuel handling facilities, expand boat slip capacity from 6 slips to 36 slips and add 25 personal water craft slips in phases, as demand allows. The operator is also proposing to construct a boat-launching ramp with paved parking area for vehicles and boat trailers. TVA is seeking public comment prior to deciding on permit issuance.
TVA is interested in receiving comments regarding the action’s potential to affect the environment or historic properties, and to identify any other issues associated with this request. Any comments received, including names and addresses, will become part of the administrative record and will be available for public inspection. All written comments on this proposed action must be received on or before October 10, 2014. Written comments may be mailed to the address below or e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
