Coast Guard objects to Little Rock marina

Posted By on Wed, Sep 7, 2011 at 7:02 AM

I wrote last week about ongoing negotiations by Highway Commissioner John Burkhalter to win Corps of Engineers approval of a 400-plus boat marina on the Arkansas River downstream from the Clinton Library.

Since then, the Coast Guard, which oversees navigation on the river, has objected to the marina plan. But it acted based on a plan that has since been revised to pull marina construction closer to shore and farther from the navigation channel. It will get new plans for the Rock City Yacht Club and reconsider its position after a review.

Burkhalter is the businessman and Gov. Mike Beebe insider who's been attempting to change the Capitol Zoning District rules to allow him to build a five-story building across the street from the Capitol.
