MWCD Board Approves $6.1 Million Dollar Project at Tappan Marina
This fall, customers of Tappan Lake Marina will begin to see the first steps of a complete renovation of the MWCD-owned and operated facility. Improvements at the facility actually began in 2017 with the installation of over 200 new boat slips, and the addition of 36 more in 2018. 2019 saw improvements to the boat storage area, and earlier this year, a new fuel dock and complete upgrade to the fueling system, was completed as well.
The approximately $6 million project will include the development of a new restaurant in the main floor of the marina building, complete with an expansive covered outdoor deck overlooking Tappan Lake. Kent and Cindy Murray, operators of the Latitude 40 Restaurant at Tappan Marina, have been involved in the design process, and are looking forward to serving even more diners in a brand-new facility next year.
The lower level of the marina, and adjacent waterfront areas, will be redeveloped as well, to make it easier and more accessible for the public to get to their docks, rent boats, and buy fuel, bait, snacks, and boating supplies.
The multi-faceted project, scheduled for completion in 2021, should provide the residents of the Tappan Lake area with a facility they can be proud of, and that will also attract visitors from near and far.
