Update on Beatty's Ford Park & Access Area Expansion.
Duke Energy will be adding a fishing pier, swimming area and additional paved parking. These items are in red on the photo above and are required. Duke Energy is legally bound by the federal operating license and the CRA (Catawba-Wateree Hydro Project Comprehensive Relicensing Agreement) to implement these recreation improvements.
These enhancements will be added to the existing recreation facilities which consist of four 1-lane boat ramps, two courtesy docks, vehicle with trailer parking (including ADA), picnic facilities and restrooms.
The items in blue are optional. These are non-project recreational enhancements that may be completed by Lincoln county. These enhancements include: picnic tables, picnic shelters, restrooms, bathhouse, concessions, and expansion of existing emergency management office, dock & parking.
This would add to the existing non-project recreation facilities which consist of a splash pad, playground, walking trail, sand volleyball court, emergency management office, emergency management dock and emergency management ramp.
