On October 19, 2023, the Recreation and Park Commission authorized RPD to proceed with planning and design for environmental review under CEQA for the Marina Improvement and Remediation Project. This work will include a financial feasibility study of the Marina with the objective of minimizing the number of slips in the West Harbor and identifying opportunities to add additional slips in the East Harbor. The environmental review process is expected to take 18-24 months and includes an Environmental Impact Report, which will be prepared by the Planning Department.
Once the review is complete, RPD will bring a proposed project back to the Recreation and Park Commission for approval with the adoption of CEQA findings; the project will consider both community feedback and the purpose of the settlement—to ensure an environmentally and financially sustainable marina.
Since the beginning of this year, RPD has received and continues to welcome public feedback about the project. The FAQ provides all the relevant project information and will continue to be updated as needed (link here).
