Planned marina gets an extension
The federal government will allow the new owners of a planned lake marina in Pickens County more time to finish the job. A Federal Energy Regulatory Commission order this week allows a group called Keowee Investment Properties LLC until October 13, 2015 to build a residential marina to serve a new home development on the Pickens County side of Lake Keowee. That development has been identified as The Cliffs at Keowee Springs II. The order reads: “Due to the depressed housing market, the new owner has requested additional time to complete marina development.” Two years ago, the FERC approved plans for four cluster docks with a capacity of 58 boat slips, a courtesy dock and a boat ramp.
