Citizens are invited to share their input on plans to renovate the FM270 boat ramp during a public meeting on Thursday, June 28, from 6 -7:30 p.m. at Clear Creek Intermediate located at 2451 E. Main Street.
The public boat ramp was constructed in 1988-89 in partnership with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD). Next month, City Council will consider whether to pursue TPWD funding and partnership for renovation of the 30-year-old boat ramp. The planned improvements will:
- Improve safety
- Result in accommodating various types and sizes of water craft
- Remove silt from the launch area
- Reinforce or replace the bulkhead
- Provide handicapped accessibility from parking lot to boat launching and boarding areas.
If the grant application is successful, TPWD will provide up to $500,000 in matching funds and the City would provide 25 percent of the project total.
