TO: HOMER CITY COUNCIL & WALT WREDE, CITY MANAGER
FROM: BRYAN HAWKINS, PORT DIRECTOR/HARBORMASTER
SUBJECT: PIONEER DOCK WEST TRESTLE APPROACH PARKING IMPROVEMENTS
DATE: AUGUST 1, 2011
In the City of Homer’s lease agreement with the U.S. Coast Guard dated July 29, 2003, Page 1, Item 1.C explains our commitment to provide the Coast Guard Cutter Hickory’s crewmembers parking for 25 vehicles on the west trestle and in the reserved ferry parking area.
In May 2010, the City of Homer signed a new lease with the Alaska Marine Highway Service. Within the new lease, AMHS agreed to relinquish 15,540 sq. ft. of Lot 45A to the City. It was agreed that we would use this space and the improved area west of the trestle approach to create the required parking for the Coast Guard.
Staff requests an appropriation from the Port and Harbor Reserves for this parking improvement project. The appropriation will be used to remove the existing fence, build up a portion of Lot 20 using dredged materials that will be capped with quality compactable materials, and install physical barriers between Lot 45A (AMHS’s staging area) and the Coast Guard’s parking area adjacent to the west trestle approach. The completion of this project will bring a successful close to the City’s responsibilities concerning USCG Parking on Lot 45A of the Homer Spit.
Approve Ordinance 11-34 appropriating from the Port and Harbor Reserves in the estimated amount of $21,798.25 for the Pioneer Dock West Trestle Approach Parking Improvements.
