Looking ahead at the planned redevelopment of Money Island, we know that there will be many changes with an uncertain time frame. About half of the homes are recently removed and more will be removed in the future.
Some of the immediate changes on our campus focus on increased physical and operational security. Anyone associated with the marina in a position of handling transactions or equipment will be required to provide a background investigation report. Information will be provided on a case by case basis. Members will be provided with a bright ID tag.
The marina is currently closed for winter during this permitting phase. We do not have a reopening date, but a plan is in place to reopen Husted’s Landing Marina first, then Money Island later. Things will definitely be different here in the future and we don’t know those details yet. This list of changes will change as we get feedback from the state, developers, local government and others. But this is what we see so far for 2019:
Facilities expected to be open to members:
boat launch (defined as the concrete or gravel structures on the ground at various locations)
nature walk areas
recreational and commercial docks on sites not designated by the state
Docks on sites not closed by the state
Facilities expected to be closed to all:
ramps on sites designated by the state
docks on sites designated by the state
walkways on sites designated by the state
