This Week’s Improvements

We’ve got two great updates to start your weekend! All roads are now passable at Highport and our lighting project is complete.

On the breakwater project, we are starting the process of moving the old breakwater system out of the water as we prepare for the new breakwater installation. Be on the lookout for a separate Helm with more details about this ongoing project.

Work is also continuing on an ongoing basis for boathouse repairs.
