There are miles and miles of undeveloped land near the National Infantry Museum near Columbus, Ga., that will all soon be redeveloped into a massive marina and RV camping area.

City Planning Manager Rick Jones says the project is expected to move to the next phase in July, WTVM-TV, Columbus, reported.

"We are looking for someone who can come in there and help us develop it we would provide the land primarily," says Jones.

While contract bidding for the project has already begun, Jones says the cost of the project is still being determined but the amenities that the new park will offer have already been discussed.

A mile long channel will be dug near the Oxbow Meadows wetlands to connect the marina to the river.

"Boaters will have the opportunity to come in and have a place to put their boat be able to get into the Chattahoochee," Jones said.

"There has been a lot of development and a lot of emphasis put on getting people to come out to this part of town and recreate and be able to hike and bike and now camp," Director of Oxbow Meadow Lisa Randolph said.

    This is about the worst idea I have heard in many years! What idiot came up with this? Who in their right mind would like to keep a boat in a mosquito infested cesspool dredged in an area so far from anything a boater wants to see???
    Look at who will benefit ($$$) from this WHITE ELEPHANT!
    This is stupid and is an absolute waste of money!
    This idiotic idea has been killed several times before and MUST be stopped again it seems!
    This is just pure stupid!
