The Harbor Commission voted Wednesday to move forward with several projects, including the Multiple Vessel Mooring System and Water Taxi.
Both Ad Hoc Committees presented updates about the proposed pilot projects to the commission and both were unanimously approved to be forwarded to the City Council for review. Commissioner Paul Bank recused himself from the multiple vessel mooring item because he is a mooring permit holder.
Commissioner Brad Avery spoke about the proposed pilot Multiple Vessel Mooring System.
The update included using several different mooring systems. It’s a pilot program, not something set in stone for the future, Avery said, there are no fees involved.
The pilot project would test the idea with six docks.
Commissioner Doug West provided an update of the Water Taxi Ad Hoc Committee’s progress.
West emphasized that it should be a taxi and not a sightseeing boat that would compete with local businesses.
Both will likely go before council in June.
