PROPOSED PUBLIC BOAT LAUNCH: The Municipal Recreation Improvement District (MRID) and the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission are discussing a proposed public boat launch at Fisherman’s Park on Crown Lake in Horseshoe Bend. According to AGFC Regional Maintenance Contract Coordinator Mike Cantrell, the preliminary proposal will include vehicle and trailer parking, a boarding dock and launch ramp. If the proposal is approved, this will become public access to Crown Lake. Some residents have questioned the increase in vehicle and boat traffic, possible increase in theft and noise, and possible decrease in property value. According to Cantrell, a previous proposal with Box Hound Marina “is at an end pass, and done.” Box Hound Marina has recently resurfaced their boat launch which is free to use by property owners. MRID has included discussion of the proposed launch in their public meeting agenda for January 15 at 6:30 p.m. at the MRID building located atop Turkey Mountain.
