The Richardson’s Bay Regional Agency has hired Merkel & Associates to conduct a marine ecology based Mooring Feasibility and Planning Study. Through this study, the Agency is seeking information, analysis and advice about mooring locations, equipment and technique, overall mooring capacity in the bay, and accessing the shore. The study is expected to be presented to the Board of Directors on September 12, 2019.
The Richardson’s Bay Regional Agency Board of Directors has a 2019 Work Plan to continue establishing and implementing direction for the future of the bay. Many of the items in the work plan are contingent upon the outcomes of the mooring study.
In February 2018, the Board adopted Guiding Principles RBRA Board for it to consider as it makes decisions about future direction.
The Board conducted work sessions with the public at its meetings of March 8 and June 14, 2018. The outcomes of these sessions informed its decision at its April 5, 2018 meeting about initial direction to modify requirements for vessels, and in July and October about pursuing that direction first through conducting a mooring study and amending its ordinances.
