Falls Lake State Recreation Area to hold Public Meeting on No Wake Zone at Holly Point

Raleigh -- 

Falls Lake State Recreation Area will host a public meeting this week to discuss expanding a no wake zone in the Holly Point area of the park. The meeting is in response to concerns submitted by boat ramp users who have experienced property damage and injury due to excessive wake while using the boat ramp at Holly Point.

The meeting will be held Wednesday, Nov. 29 at 4 p.m. in the community building at Rolling View Marina, located at 940 Falls Lake Road in Durham. The public is invited to the meeting to voice their opinions on boat traffic near Holly Point.

Park staff will host the meeting and hope to gather public input before the Wildlife Resource Commission meeting on Dec. 7. Consideration of expanding the no wake zone at Holly Point will be on the Commission’s agenda. Public input gathered at the Nov. 29 meeting will be submitted to the commission for their consideration.
