Tiffer’s motion to choose Navtours as the preferred developer was approved by a 4-to-2 count with Calnon, Chris Case (D-Ward 5) and Chris Jackson (D-Ward 6) joining him in support and Carpenter and Rabideau voting no.
Rabideau said he preferred Plattsburgh Boat Basin because they were local and have been doing business here successfully for 17 years.
Following the meeting, White said Navtours will meet with city department heads to figure out the next steps.
“I think there is untold potential with this site,” she said.
“This could be the crown jewel of Plattsburgh and the gateway for visitors from all over.”
