Waterfront & Marina Challenges
I have attempted to provide positive updates in each of my articles, but this month I am reporting on some major hurdles. In September, the fishing pier was closed to pedestrians due to safety concerns and in October the city council approved funding for emergency repairs. In December, we were notified that an emergency permit to conduct repairs on the fishing pier would not be immediately approved due to in-water work window limitations, and we received confirmation that the Prop 68 grant to make permanent upgrades to the fishing pier had not been awarded. At this time, despite plans for repairs and conceptual designs for rehabilitation, it looks as though the fishing pier will stay the status quo for the next several months.
