Marina on Ashley River may soon expand

The Ripley Light Yacht Club may soon add space for 200 more boats, essentially tripling its size and adding amenities such as a pool, a lounge, and a gym.

The estimated $14 million project requires S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control approval. The department is accepting public input through June 22 (call DHEC's Josh Young at 843-953-0257 for more information). Expansion could start early next year.

The marina is situated on the other side of the Ashley River from Bristol Marina, Ashley Marina and Charleston City Marina.
