Feasilibity Study To Implement A Non-Motorized Boathouse Zone Along The Georgetown Waterfront

National Capital Regional Office » Feasilibity Study To Implement A Non-Motorized Boathouse Zone Along The Georgetown Waterfront » Document List

The National Park Service (NPS) is examining the feasibility of implementing a non-motorized boathouse zone along the District of Columbia's side of the Potomac River waterfront upstream of the Georgetown Waterfront Park. This study represents an opportunity for the NPS to identify specific ways to enhance access to the river for user groups, as well as complement the riverside experiences provided by the Georgetown Waterfront Park and the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park. This is particularly challenging, given that there is limited space for and a high amount of demand.

The NPS will be studying what structures and facilities can be accommodated within this non-motorized boathouse zone that are related to waterfront, access to the river, and are consistent with the necessary and appropriate uses for this zone. This study will lay the groundwork for future decision-making regarding (1) scenarios for development/improvement of NPS facilities and (2) further planning and National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA)/National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) compliance as necessary to implement the non-motorized boathouse zone.
