The Prelude and Prosperous boat launches need to be replaced due to changing water levels and increased use. A public meeting with two information sessions will be held on September 13 to discuss the changes and improvements being made to both boat launches.

Upgrades to the Prosperous boat launch will include removing the current boat ramp and dock and replacing them. The new ramps will extend further into the water and a new dock will be placed in between.

Proposed Improvements to the Prelude Lake boat launch will include adding a double boat ramp and expanding the existing breakwater to create a turning area for vehicles and trailers. The current boat launch will remain in place during construction and can still be used for smaller boats.

Both information sessions will be held in the meeting room at the Yellowknife Public Library from 12:15 p.m. to 1 p.m. and then from 5:15 p.m. to 6 p.m. on the 13th. Construction on both boat launches could begin as early as this winter.
