Bainbridge officials will hold a public meeting in December to gather input from the community about the placement of new buoys in the Dave Ullin Open Water Marina in Eagle Harbor.

The city operates a residential marina within Eagle Harbor under the terms of a lease with the Washington State Department of Natural Resources. The state lease allows the city to approve subleases with 16 individual tenants in the open water marina for the purpose of supporting a vibrant liveaboard community.

Earlier this year, the city council voted to provide funding to expand the number of moorage sites from nine to 16, as allowed under the terms of the lease.

The meeting is 5:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 10 and will be hosted by the city’s Marine Access Committee.

During the last few months, the committee has taken input on the location of the new buoys, as well as safety concerns involved with navigation in Eagle Harbor.

At the upcoming meeting, the committee will take comment on the project and provide an overview of the planned work. The committee will use public input to develop recommendations for staff and the city council to decide how and where the buoys should be located in Eagle Harbor.

The Dec. 10 meeting begins with an open house from 5:30 to 6 p.m., with a formal presentation at 6 followed by a question-and-answer session.

Those who can’t attend the meeting can send comments to operations project manager Aaron Claiborne at aclaiborne@bainbridgewa.gov. Comments are due by Friday, Dec. 14.
