The proposed work consists of the construction of a commercial docking facility.  In detail, the proposed work involves removing the existing floating dock and replacing it with an 88’ long, 888 S.F. floating “main” dock with 768 S.F. of area designated for approximately twelve (12) floating Jet-Port personal watercraft (PWC) docks (approximately 11’ x 5’ each).  The existing 3’ x 30’ ramp will be shortened (or replaced) to a length of 18’ to accommodate the new dock configuration.  To increase temporary mooring area and reduce pedestrian crowding during peak recreation times, dockage will be expanded by adding five (5) 8’ X 32’ floating dock units in the AIWW.  The proposed additions would see one (1) floating dock unit extend southwest from the main dock and four (4) floating dock units extend northeast, with two (2) additional floating Jet-Ports (9’ X 4’ ea., 72 S.F.) attached at the northeastern most extent.  The applicant offered no compensatory mitigation for impacts associated with the project. It is understood that this work is to be conducted on/or adjacent to an area subject to a prism and/or disposal area held by the United States.  Appropriate provisions will been included in the permit to ensure the interests of the Federal Government are understood. The project purpose as stated by the applicant is to increase commercial dockage at this location for public use during peak recreational times of the year.
