Bazley directed the preparation of the marina masterplan that was
approved by City Council as the basis for the privatization of the
marina and adjacent land areas. Conceptual design work is currently
in process to refine the masterplan improvements to accommodate the
developers land use plans.
BLUEWater Design Group
(BDG) professional services continued with the preparation and processing
of the City’s application for grant funding to the California
Department of Boating and Waterways (DBW) for improvements to the
boat launch ramp and parking areas. The grant to the City was approved
by DBW. Design work is currently in process by BDG to prepare construction
contract documents for the DBW funded launch ramp improvements.
Similar to the DBW grant, the
City was awarded a grant from the California Coastal Conservancy
for shoreline stabilization and construction of public plaza and
extensive waterfront access improvements. BDG is preparing contract
documents for construction of these improvements concurrent with
the launch ramp grant improvements. The critical design aspects
include creative use of open space and surface treatments and implementation
of new technologies for sheet pile construction and lightweight
fill (geofoam) to minimize settlement in the deep layers of bay
mud at the project site.
BLUEWater Design Group was also
responsible for the permitting, design and construction-engineering
support services for the year 2000/2001 maintenance dredging of
the main channels in the marina. This dredging episode moved 35,000
cubic yards of material to onsite dredge disposal basins.
