Lincoln Creek touches the high ground of the WMA (Wild Life Management Area) between Lincoln Estates and Belle Island development. Of the three others sites that I have considered for a northern boat ramp for the Bryanneck peninsular, it is the very best one yet!
It is owned by us as taxpayers and in the management and custody of the department of natural resources of Georgia. It is nice, firm, high ground right to the water’s edge. There are roads on the management property in place, which just need upgrading to suffice as an entry road for another boat ramp for us on this coast. Only the actual cost of the boat ramp itself and the road enhancement will be incurred to build this facility. Accordingly, I am excited about the prospects of this location at 31.46.30 North and 81. 13.01 West. You can see it on Google Earth of Flash Earth for the exact location. It would be a far better ramp than the other one on the Belfast/Keller Siding Road WMA. Entrance can be from the Belle Island Road or the Lincoln Estates Road.
I fully intend to present this prospective site to our elected officials and the DNR/CRD in Brunswick. It could be a cooperative effort of DNR/CRD and Bryan County via funding from SPLOST recreational money if the extension passes on November 8.
Convincing them to undertake this recreation facility for boaters and fishermen will be a challenge. Funding in this tight state of our economy will be difficult. But funds have been found recently for enhancement of ramps in Glynn County, so why not here?
If you agree with me, please contact those parties who control that decision and ask them to please explore and consider this location for a boat ramp on the northern side of the peninsular.
