The city proposes to provide access for non-motorized personal watercraft, including landside features such as parking lot improvements; loading/unloading areas; a dock; and vault toilet restroom. Currently, access to North Bay via the Arcata Marsh and Wildlife Sanctuary is severely limited during only high tide windows. The proposed dock will be located at the southern limit of the project area and will consist of a concrete abutment, an aluminum gangway landing float, and a launching float. Four piles will be required for installation and will be installed during low tide when no water is present.
