We have just learnt from viewing the Better Boating Program website, that the North Arm Cove Residents Association has been successful in gaining a grant of $31,375 for construction of dinghy slips at Water St, and Casuarina Park. This is exciting news indeed! With installation of dinghy racks due to commence next week, followed by landscaping of the two areas, we should end up with two attractive reserves fronting North Arm Cove. This is the fourth grant the Association has gained in the past eighteen months representing a total of $63,575, which is very gratifying.
