CLEARFIELD – Clearfield Borough Council heard good news about a proposed boat launch and dock at Lower Witmer Park at Thursday’s committees meetings.
Todd Banks of Stiffler, McGraw and Associates, said that he heard from DEP that the boat dock was a permitable.
There was some discussion at a December meeting of council as to whether a dock would be permitted on the Susquehanna River.
Banks said that with this new information, his firm will apply for permits for the boat launch and the dock. He also added that piers for the dock will be permanent, while the decking will be removable.
The boat launch project is the result of two grants, one from the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and the other from the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission.
