Whitewater idea is floated

-A A +A

Kayaking venue discussed at business council, county commission

By David Davis

The Nature Coast Business Development Council has set five goals for 2018 to help build a stronger economic foundation for the future.

The goals include completing the economic impact statement for the Inglis whitewater kayaking venue; countywide broadband; investment launch; relaunching the business alliance and establishing a food-related business incubator. Broadband internet and whitewater kayaking were discussed at the meeting Thursday, Jan. 11, at the Jack Wilkinson Campus of the College of Central Florida.

Council Director David Pieklik opened discussion on the economic impact statement for a kayaking project in Inglis. Completion of the EIS by the University of Central Florida is expected in April.

Richard Streeter, of Inglis, said a whitewater course in Inglis would have two advantages over any other similar venue in the country. It would operate year around and the water temperature is very important to Olympic kayaking.
