St. Marys seeks grant to develop boathouse plans

boathuseThe city applied for a grant Thursday to pay an architecture firm to draw concept renderings for a building project on the waterfront property where the late Howard Gilman once entertained guests at his boathouse.

Should the city be awarded the Tourism Product Development Grant, it would receive $20,000 from the Georgia Department of Economic Development. It would also be on the hook for a $20,000 match, up to 40 percent of which could be made in kind.

The Foram Group, the developer the city chose for the property, could use the architectural renderings to seek investors for the project.
