This artist's rendering shows how the Beaufort Downtown Marina could look with a multi-use building that would offer rowboat rentals, the conversion of the day dock into a dock for rowing sports and dinghies and the addition of a high quality day dock near Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park.

The city of Beaufort will revisit several ongoing projects, including plans for the downtown marina, at the city's Redevelopment Commission meeting this afternoon.

The commission will meet at 5 p.m. in the planing conference room in Beaufort City Hall at 1911 Boundary St.

Reports on the marina, Lafayette Street and the Baptist Church of Beaufort property are scheduled to go before the commission today.

Earlier this week, Jim Chaffin of Historic Marina Partners LLC said he and partner Steve Navarro are still working on written plans on development of the Beaufort Downtown Marina parking lot, and a public presentation is still weeks away.
