The first page of any filing should include docket number P-2413-127. Comments emailed to Commission staff are not considered part of the Commission record.

The Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure require all intervenors filing documents with the Commission to serve a copy of that document on each person whose name appears on the official service list for the project. Further, if an intervenor files comments or documents with the Commission relating to the merits of an issue that may affect the responsibilities of a particular resource agency, they must also serve a copy of the document on that resource agency.

k. Description of Request: Georgia Power Company is requesting Commission approval to permit 1054 Lake Oconee Parkway, LLC (applicant) to construct a commercial marina on the site of an existing commercial development (i.e., Jerry's Bait and Tackle) that has closed. The applicant proposes to construct a commercial marina and dry boat storage facility that would include a stationary, wooden dock that could accommodate 18 watercraft, a concrete walkway, and two concrete ramps (one of which would be used as the launch serving the dry storage operation). The dock would not extend farther than 50 feet into the water, would include a fuel pump platform (with two pumps and four dispensers), and would follow the licensee's shoreline management guidelines. Since filing its marina application, on June 18, 2020, the licensee received a new license to continue operating the Wallace Dam project.
