Perhaps it's time for the state to realize the best location would be at the end of the state owned Jodrey Fish Pier extending with a float system to the edge of the mooring field.harbordog wrote:
There is a lot of political posturing going on with our money. Fund a study for location and make further investment in a location that has not been secured for financing? Doesn't sound good.
You and I know at the end of the pier is wasted space leading out to the sailing float. It wouldn't displace any commercial interests. The city should convince the state it's a good idea for a city/state partnership.Damon wrote:
Once again opening legal can of worms. As I understand it the pier is dedicated to commercial fishing use. Government is allowed (Envioro police, MCZM, Coast Guard), so I assume the harbormaster is allowed. However I doubt if facilities for visiting yachts and yachters would pass muster.
I believe it is to include storage lockers for the youth sailing programs and combination class room/conference space.harbordog wrote: here is a link to the agenda for the Waterways Board meeting on Tuesday Oct 3rd at 6:00 pm.
the agenda lists a presentation by the consultant then following a public meeting. this seems a bit contradictory.
I assume, due to the legal notice stating a start time of 7:00 pm, the consultant will start the presentation at 7:00 pm with public comment to follow.
the proposal as stated includes a harbormaster station and yacht club accommodations for visitors.
it does not include any uses by residents. this seems short sighted.
