Default Should the city take another look at this idea

I remember about a decade ago the city talked about dredging the Merry Brickyard ponds to create a large lake for rowing, boat racing and other activities do you think the city should take another look at this idea? Also if the plan had been implemented how do you think the surrounding area would have been impacted? What would have been the positives? What would have been the negatives?

I think it actually is a cool idea...the main obstacle would be getting environmentalists on board. You could actually have waterfront homes, it could actually be a pretty good regional draw.

yes they should. Offer Bass Pro some incentives to locate there along with the racers, bird watchers, and hunters they should survive and help revitalize the area win win for everyone. besides if you type in Bass Pro Augusta google maps gives you this as the location maybe they are giving you guys a hint.

I doubt it


But anyway, if the Bass Pro shop located on a development near there, and a bunch of those smaller ponds were dredged into one huge lake, that coupled with having the Phinizy Swamp WMA directly to the south, the Phinizy Swamp Nature Park further to the southeast, and having the river to the north and east could make East Augusta a outdoor lover's paradise...
