Mountain Region

IMMEDIATE GOALS IN THE MOUNTAIN REGION INCLUDE THE LAKE LURE MARINA AND VISITOR CENTER AND STREETSCAPE ENHANCEMENTS THROUGHOUT CHIMNEY ROCK VILLAGE.

Lake Lure

Lake Lure Marina, Visitor Center, and Boat Slip Expansion

Project Description
The current Lake Lure Marina will be replaced with a two-story, 5,000 square foot visitor center and upper floor restaurant. The marina will continue to serve Lake Lure Tours and boat slip users. However, a new visitor center will cater to tourists wishing to explore Rutherford County’s many resources and assets.

Existing boats slips will be reoriented and expanded along a new boardwalk connecting the Marina and beach.

Partner with Us
The new boardwalk linking the marina to the beach is a critical infrastructure element that will serve locals and visitors for years to come. A donor wall and other recognition opportunities are available to those providing financial support.

The Town of Lake Lure welcomes a private partner wishing to establish a restaurant on the upper floor of the new marina.

“The Town of Lake Lure will finance the new boat slips based on expected additional revenues.”

Chimney Rock Village

Streetscape & Riverside Deck

Chimney Rock Village has a unique opportunity to not only improve the appearance and walkability of its Main Street, but also improve access to the scenic Broad River.

PHASE 1A: STREETSCAPE ENHANCEMENT

Phase 1A streetscape enhancements include improvements to sidewalks from the Chimney Rock Gemstone Mine east to Bubba O’Leary’s. Sidewalk enhancements will create increased pedestrian capacity without reducing existing parking, encouraging visitors to spend more time (and money) in the village.

PHASE 1B: RIVERSIDE DECK

The Riverwalk has become one of the greatest assets of Chimney Rock Village and rightly so. It is rare that such an active Main Street can offer such an authentic, nature-based experience. To further leverage this unique asset, the Riverside Deck is proposed as a raised public plaza and viewing area for the Broad River.

“The time to act is now.  The time to improve our Village and prepare for the next generation of visitors and business owners is  upon us.”
