The National Park Service (NPS) will conduct a public information meeting on Tuesday, December 13, 2011, regarding a feasibility study to examine implementation of a non-motorized boathouse zone along the District of Columbia’s side of the Potomac River waterfront in Georgetown. The NPS will study the structures and facilities related to non-motorized boat usage, including rowing, canoeing and kayaking, that can be accommodated within this zone (project area), as well as other uses, such as cycling and passive recreation.
This study will lay the groundwork for future decision-making regarding (1) scenarios for development/improvement of NPS facilities or potential land exchanges for private development of boathouses, and (2) further planning and National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA)/National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) compliance as necessary to implement the non-motorized boathouse zone.
