A plan for a new marine haul out and boatyard at Sitka’s industrial park is headed to the assembly table -- this time with negotiated terms. While the plan calls for private management and operation of the facility, it also involves significant amounts of public funding -- and not everyone is happy about it.
A proposal for a new marine haul out and boatyard is on its way to the Sitka Assembly, for consideration in May.
The board of the Gary Paxton Industrial Park on Monday (4-27-20) evaluated a pair of competing proposals for a new marine services center at the park, and sent the high scorer on to city hall. Board members, working under a fast timeline, hope the city will refine the plan before committing to it.
