  • Three alternatives exist:

    • Work with R&P to reconsider Griggs

    • Hoover

    • Downtown

  • R&P letter

    • “One of the purposes of the Marine Event permit process is to ensure that the public waterways always remain open for the use and enjoyment of the public at large. Special privileges may be granted for use of a section of reservoir only when it will not significantly impact the public’s use. The normal guidelines are not to schedule regattas on holidays or weekend days during the peak public boating season of May 1st to October 1st.”


Downtown l.jpg
Downtown

  • Disadvantages
