Bainbridge council to discuss city dock redesign

The Bainbridge Island City Council will get a second look at the design plans for the city dock at the Bainbridge Island Waterfront Park.

After previous meetings where the council suggested eliminating a portion of the design, the city's public works staff have returned to present a redrafted dock layout.

The design will maintain its "hockey stick" layout and extended boat launch ramp.

The hockey stick shape would preserve the pier's current uses, including sailing and rowing activities. By also extending the boat ramp to deeper water, the facilities would provide more access during low tide.

The most recent design will not include, however, the previously proposed three finger piers for visiting boat moorage.

In preparation for state grant applications, the council will consider the 30 percent city dock design during this week's "unfinished business" portion of the agenda.

The Bainbridge Island City Council usually meets at 7 p.m. Mondays, but this week's meeting was rescheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 27 due to the Memorial Day holiday.
