The proposed project involves the refurbishment of the Children's Training dock at the CYC located at 1631 Strand Way in the city. The proposed project would involve removal of the dock's existing surface planks and replacement with new planks to improve its usability, longevity, and appearance. No increase in overwater coverage would result from implementation of the proposed project. Work to specifically complete the proposed project would include the following: removal of the existing approx 5,200 sf of decking planks and associated fixing screws; and installation of replacement PVC plastic decking planks and fascia boards.
Debris removed from the dock would be stored onsite in the maintenance yard in a dedicated and covered container for eventual off-site disposal.
A pre-construction eelgrass survey conducted by Merkel & Associates, Inc. on April 12, 2018, determined that eelgrass occurs within the proposed project area. However, due to the limited scope of the proposed project and construction methods, no impacts are anticipated.
It is anticipated that construction of the proposed project would begin mid-year and would have a total construction period of approx 6 months, weather permitting. Due to its nature and limited scope, construction of the proposed project would generate approx 2 vehicle trips associated with hauling of construction demolition debris. Furthermore, the proposed project would require limited use of construction equipment. Therefore, no impacts are anticipated. Furthermore, the applicant is responsible for complying with all applicable federal, state, and local laws regulating construction demolition debris, hazards and hazardous materials, noise, and stormwater. Finally, the applicant is in the process of or has obtained the following approvals and/or permits: Army Corps of Engineers permit and Clean Water Act Section 401 Certification.
