TSRA/APEs/TVCC Public Comments Regarding Commercial Paddlecraft Regulations

Thursday, January 03, 2019 6:23 PM | Kristen West (Administrator)

To: Tennessee Fish and Wildlife Commission

Regarding: Proposed Commercial Paddlecraft Regulations

On behalf of private boaters and citizens across the state, the Tennessee Scenic Rivers Association would like to submit public comment to the Tennessee Fish and Wildlife Commission about the proposed regulations for commercial operations of non-motorized watercraft. The Appalachian Paddling Enthusiasts from upper east Tennessee and the Tennessee Valley Canoe Club from Chattanooga have also signed on to these comments.

First, we are very appreciative that TWRA opened up the process to include input from various stakeholders in the community. We believe it is a much better proposal as a result of the collaboration. Our further comments are intended to continue this effort to encourage development of good public policy for Tennessee's waterways, citizens and businesses.

1. Commercial Launch fees seem excessive. . .
