City marina project moves forward



There would also be 92 feet of dock space reserved for dinghies for boaters to access the moored sailboats.


Allen said they plan to renovate the former 2,500-square-foot restaurant on that property, including new vinyl shake siding, new doors and three cupolas. 

The project overall would include office space, a welcome center, cafe, ships store, restrooms with showers, laundry room, 32 dock slips and 25 moorings.

The cafe, store, restrooms, showers and laundry facilities would be open to the public.

Some tables would be set up along the west side of the building for outdoor dining to augment other tables closer to the water. 

The cafe would be more like a sandwich counter, White said, and they plan to seek a wine and beer license for the ships store. Navmarine also plans to offer kayak and bicycle rentals.


In July, the Plattsburgh City Council chose NavTours to develop the marina. The owners of Plattsburgh Boat Basin also submitted a proposal.

Both were reviewed by the Lake City Local Development Corp.

The project still requires finalization of a lease with the city. A permit from the New York State Office of General Services is required for the portion of the property that is in the lake, and that application has already been submitted.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and State Department of Environmental Conservation also need to sign off on the project.
