On September 12, 2019, the marine ecology firm Merkel & Associates presented a summary of its Mooring Feasibility & Planning Study to the Richardson’s Bay Regional Agency Board of Directors. The study analyzed eelgrass and other bay conditions to inform decisions on potential mooring locations, equipment, capacity, and transiting to shore. Merkel is completing a final report to transmit to the Agency, upon which the Board can base next steps and actions.
On July 11, 2019, the RBRA Board of Directors added to its enforcement priorities time limits for vessels entering Richardson’s Bay with adoption of Resolution No. 03-19. Vessels coming into the bay may not stay longer than 72 hours without permission from the Harbormaster. An Anchoring Permit Application to request a stay longer than 72 hours is available here.
