Improvements planned for Steubenville Marina

Plans are starting to come together to make some improvements and new additions at the Steubenville Marina.

Plans are starting to come together to make some improvements and new additions at the Steubenville Marina.

A new road, restaurant, bike trail, boat docks and ramps are just a few new ideas being tossed back and forth among Steubenville's City Council for the marina. Council most recently spoke with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to discuss planning and funding, and say they encouraged the city's ideas once the right developer is chosen.

"I'm just looking forward to seeing the wonder on kids’ faces and the joy of people sharing a closer relationship down by the river," Councilwoman Kimberly Hahn said.

"The river is what gave life to the city. And to return back to the river is a way to connect with our roots. It’s to understand a place in history better."

The city is on the search for a developer who will help plan the restoration leavers have been envisioning.

The date of construction will depend, of course, on their developer and the grants they receive to fund the entire marina project.
