Central Arkansas Water is seeking public comment on two leases up for renewal in the Lake Maumelle watershed — Jolly Roger's Marina and the Grande Maumelle Sailing Club at Lake Maumelle. A survey on the decisions can be accessed here.
After the jump, a letter from CAW Watershed Protection Manager John Tynan on the lease renewals and the public survey.
Lake Maumelle Watershed Stakeholders,
As you may know, Central Arkansas Water is evaluating the renewal of the leases for Jolly Roger’s Marina and the Grande Maumelle Sailing Club at Lake Maumelle. As part of the renewal process and our commitment to collaboration regarding watershed projects, we have created a survey that will allow us to solicit feedback from the community regarding the marinas, their operation, and their relationship to watershed protection.
The survey will give the users of the marinas and the larger community an opportunity to provide input and suggestions as to how CAW may continuously improve our watershed protection efforts, particularly those that relate to recreational access and use of Lake Maumelle. The results of the survey will assist CAW in development of the lease renewals.
The survey can be accessed at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/WH36KSD.
