Lee's Landing celebrated the opening of their new boardwalk over the weekend.
Now the Port Deposit business has plans to grow even more.
On Thursday, May 19 at 6 p.m. at the Perryville Branch Library, Coudon Boulevard, officials from Maryland Department of the Environment will host a meeting. According to Port Deposit town administrator Vicky Rinkerman, this informational meeting will keep residents in the loop regarding another project at Lee's Landing, Rowland Drive.
Lee's Landing has applied for permits to install a boat pier. Because the project is water-oriented, they have to receive state approval before it goes to town planners.
If approved, the pier will measure 265 feet long and be a floating model pier. "The pier will extend a maximum of 303 feet channel ward of the mean high water line."
Anyone who may be impacted by this pier is encouraged to attend the meeting. If approved by the state, the Town of Port Deposit will then have to approve it.
In other business from Port Deposit: • The Port Deposit budget hearing for the new fiscal year will be held June 7 at 7 p.m. at town hall. There is no change in the current constant yield of .5510 per $100 of assessed property value. Anyone who would like to review the budget, may check the town website.
• July 14 is the tentative date for the groundbreaking for the Tome Gas House.
