Background: This legislation will authorize the Director of Recreation and Parks, with the approval of the Director of Finance and Management and the Director of the Department of Public Utilities to enter into lease agreements with the Columbus Aqua Ski Club, East Shore Yacht Club, Scioto Boat Club, Buckeye Boat Club, Leather Lips Yacht Club, Hoover Sailing Club, Columbus Sailing Club, Hoovergate Homeowner’s Association, and the Quarry Homeowner's Association (Hereinafter "Boat Clubs") in conjunction with their boating, sailing and skiing activities at Griggs, Hoover and O'Shaughnessy Reservoirs.

Club Memberships range anywhere between 100 and 200 members. Adults and youth benefit from the services provided by the Boat Clubs. They offer Programs teaching boating and sailing skills at no charge or discounted rates to City of Columbus residents and many of their activities are ADA approved so they can provide services to individuals with special needs. Programs are also available to students at the high school and collegiate levels.
