Full Public Notice            Project Plans

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes to develop a marina that will result in the creation of 100 boat slips, attendant access roads, parking, and pedestrian boardwalks within an existing backwater of Clear Creek.  The slips would be placed off 11,790-square-foot of floating docks located along five access gangways that are supported by 92 pilings installed within the marina basin.  The gangways will be anchored on the shore of the basin above the high tide line (HTL) and behind soil erosion prevention bulkheads.  Approximately 1,330 cubic yards (cy) of material will be mechanically and/or hydraulically dredged to deepen portions of the marina for placement of the docks as well as deepen the inlet from Clear Creek for vessel access.  Dredged material will be placed in a designated upland placement area (PA).  

For the construction of 2.18 acres of roads and parking areas, the applicant is proposing to permanently discharge fill material into 0.14 acres of palustrine (PEM) wetlands and temporarily discharge fill material into 0.05 acres of PEM wetlands to fulfil the project’s purpose and need.  Temporary impacts to wetlands would be restored to preconstruction contours and elevations once work has ceased in these areas.

Vehicle access to the marina will be from roadways with roadside parking that connect to the adjacent community.  Three parking lots, including one boat trailer parking area, will branch from the main roadway for additional parking.  Approximately 0.22 miles of 10-foot-wide wood planked boardwalks will be constructed over the existing bulkheads of the marina to allow for access between gangways, parking, and viewing areas.
