Bainbridge city council approves city dock redesign

The Bainbridge Island City Council had 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 Director Barry Loveless returned to present a redrafted dock layout Tuesday. The design will maintain its “hockey stick” layout and extended boat launch ramp.

The hockey stick shape would preserve the pier’s current uses, Loveless said, 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 unanimously approved the revised city dock design.
