Bill Stevens, executive director of the Cadiz/Trigg County Tourist Commission, showed ballpark estimates and conceptual drawings of a couple of sites to that group at its meeting Thursday afternoon.
“All [Kentucky] Fish and Wildlife projects … are on hold due to the budget. It looks like there’s going to be a waiting period for accepting projects of probably at least four or five years,” said Stevens.
At 2012 prices, a small boat ramp at Casey Creek – which would entail a one-lane ramp, six trailer spaces and eight single spaces – would cost $109,330. A small boat ramp at Pee Dee that would include the same main features as the Casey Creek ramp, would cost $61,730.
The Pee Dee site would be off of Ky. 164, while the Casey Creek site would be off of Ky. 1253. Tourist Commission member Gary Polete asked why a Ky. 272 site off of Honeysuckle Lane wasn’t included. He said that if the site was already “all right-of-way,” it would be their “best bet.”
