Walking on Water

Photo: Design for the new marina to be built.

For years the competition to land a boat slip on the Burlington waterfront has been cut throat. Developers Jack Wallace and Chuck DesLauriers decided to do something about it by planning a private 160 slip marina for late 2017 or early 2018. The two developers and the Burlington City Council have just come to an agreement on lease terms. They’ll have to pay the city $27,500 plus 5% of revenues over $565,000 the first year, and $55,000 plus 5% of revenues over $1,130,000 in subsequent years in order to operate the private marina on public land. Included in the marina would be a lengthy floating breakwater that would serve as a public walkway allowing pedestrians to walk a decent distance on to the lake. Many Burlington officials have been “on the fence” about this project for some time. However, everyone is now in agreement that the development will change Burlington for the better.
