The owner of Harborwalk, a luxury waterfront community, shut down the neighborhood’s marina, swimming pool and other amenities last week, following through on his promise in September to close access to the facilities if a local municipal utility district didn’t dredge the harbor.

As a boater i can tell you it’s not safe to go into Harborwalk

Having been in and out of Harborwalk a hundred times I don't understand the purpose of shutting down the pool and boat launch. At the entrance of the canal I understand that it gets to about 5' feet deep or less on a normal tide but this does not effect the recreational boater. Please fix this and get a restaurant to replace Floyd's.

The MUD directors placed NO MOORING for boaters to tie up with penalties if they do. Many boats motors and props damaged due to shallow MUD launch. Director McKenzie claimed the pool had dangerous mold and shouted everyone would be at risk. The issues are being investigated after thousands were paid to repair. The restaurant is almost completely remodeled but work stopped when MUD directors said the advertised channel dept would not happen till 2021 if then. Being one of the largest investors in Harborwalk I am very displeased with the MUD directors decisions. Perhaps the election on November 6 will bring new life. Paul Leviner

I think it us horrible to have made such an investment building a house in the assumption that the neighborhood amenities would always be there. So sad. People in your area need to VOTE November 2nd. Get someone in the position who can get things done in a timely manor.

Full service Restaurant will never work there. Not enough traffic ever. Seasonal biz. I never take my boat in there not deep enough!

Family did enjoy being part of the Club. But saw how everything went downhill in the last 2 years. I hope this get resolved and can re-open. Very close to buy a lot there but will wait now....
