Sunset Pointe gets permits for marina

By Paris Goodnight

Dan Fisher says he finally has the permits needed for Sunset Pointe’s marina ó after four years of trying and $70,000.
He had to go through Alcoa and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. Alcoa gives the final permit, but Fisher said one troubling stipulation is a deadline of 18 months from the April 15 approval date.
“There’s no dredging if the water’s not down 8 feet,” he said. “But in three years, it hasn’t been down that far.”
Alcoa generally lowers the water level in winter months, which would likely give him only one season to meet that requirement.
Fisher said the main problem now is trying to find an equity partner to fund the project or getting a loan from the Small Business Administration.
His plans are for a restaurant in the marina on Goodman Lake Road and 68 wet slips for boats.
The mixed-use community on High Rock Lake covers 241 acres with almost two miles of frontage on High Rock Lake.
