Kenora Mayor Dave Canfield says they're making progress. He sees more docking available now for boaters visiting the community.
"That marina has had huge impact," he said, noting the introduction of Tall Pines. "We put some more docks in there last year. We're still looking."
Along with the new WSL Marina, the mayor's still hoping for a new facility on the Winnipeg River and Rideout Bay.
"You know, to not have that opportunity for people from Minaki to come in by boat, and get into Kenora," he said, shaking his head. "It's a heck of a lot closer by boat, than it is by the highway, and it's a great boat ride."
Zoning amendments were passed two years ago for the old clarifier property at Rideout Bay. There has also been talk of adding residential units in the area of Rideout Bay, which is on the Winnipeg River.
The mayor is also noting the addition of docks at the Clarion Lakeside Inn. The community was featured in Boating Life in 2002, and the city moved to have the city become a premiere boating destination in 2012.
