"Boathouse" for the police and fire department?

More like $1million shed.

Any rumors or talk going around about how this plan is or isn't progressing?

I don't know if anyone else remembers or not, but I believe it was back in 2007 or 2008 that the H-D and reporter Jean Hardiman did a series of stories regarding the history of the riverfront, the potential of the area and even a story or two on how other cities have revitalized their riverfront areas. That was close to ten years ago and we're still waiting on something to happen in Huntington.

A little bit of info about the Riverfront upgrades was in an article about after flood clean-up:

He said future development plans for the park are still in place.

"There are plans for a complete marina down on the east end of the park," he said. "A boat house has already been brought in for Coast Guard, fire department or police department use, and electricity is down there again."

Plans for the development at Harris Riverfront Park first started rolling in 2015 when Huntington Mayor Steve Williams announced a partnership with Riverwalk LLC. The plans for the $100 million, three-phase development include a 260-slip marina, dry dock facilities, boardwalk, splash park and more.
