Makeover For Riverfront Property In Jacksonville

New plans are in place to turn unused waterfront property into a brand new boat ramp and park in Jacksonville.

Across from the USO in Jacksonville is a slice of river front property owned by both the county and private businesses. The county is donating its share of land and the city is buying out a few businesses to turn the piece of land into a new boating ramp, along with public restrooms, a welcome center, and plenty of parking.

City manager Richard Woodruff says this project may be able to lure fishing tournaments to Jacksonville. "Currently in the downtown area, we only having parking for boat trailers of about a dozen spaces. The new facility is projected to have over 60 spaces."

The project is expected to be complete in two years. Demolition is set to start within the next two months.
