Neighbors File Appeal To Stop Marina Move

From Staff And Wire Reports
 

Two property owners near Arrow Point have appealed a state Department of Lands decision to allow an 82-slip marina to move into the channel on the west side of Arrow Point.

Roger Stewart of Arrow Point Development Co. applied to the state agency to move the boat slip from a bay on the east side of the peninsula to the west side.

Neighbors Pat Stroud and John Goedde object to the new location of the marina, arguing that it causes a navigational hazard, interferes with recreation along the shoreline and could harm water quality and cause other problems.

In its new location, the marina would jut out 350 feet into Lake Coeur d’Alene between Arrow Point and the west shore south of Stevens Point.

The Department of Lands acknowledged that the current location of the marina is superior to the new location but cited Stewart’s problems with riparian rights at the current location as a reason to move.

Stewart is in a legal dispute with owners of the Arrow Point Bar and Grill. The property adjacent to where the marina now is located is involved in the legal dispute.
