November in-water construction activity focused on the installation of the Phase 1 docks. A permit amendment was granted to extend the in-water work window into the first two weeks of December so that Dutra can wrap up pile driving. By December 15 we should see the Contractor’s barges leave the harbor, returning in the spring for the start of Phase 2. With the close of the in-water work window, the dock-side work activities will shift to the installation of the dock-side utilities including the dock lights, water lines and electrical pedestals.
December will see the completion of the landside work on the north jetty. Utility trenching is almost complete and the new switchgear equipment located just east of the St Francis is now in place. The new Playground&E transformer will arrive on site in the coming weeks. Landside work on the south side of the marina will ramp up in December with the renovation of the Harbor Office and work on the West Mole. The harbor office, restrooms and boater showers were closed on November 28 and the harbor staff was relocated to the CM trailer located at the foot of Scott Street. The work on the building will continue through December and into early January. Again, we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.
The Recreation and Parks Department will be holding a public meeting on December 7, 2011 to discuss various issues, including the schedule and process for permanent slip assignments to be made at the conclusion of the renovation project. All boaters and other marina stakeholders are encouraged to attend the meeting which will be held in the Fort Mason Center, Golden Gate Room [please note change in meeting room], beginning at 6:30 pm. If you are unable to attend the meeting but have ideas or opinions you would like to convey to us, please send them via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or simply stop by the temporary harbor office to speak one-on-one with the harbor staff. Your input is important to us.
