UPDATE: Mason’s Marina Community Feedback Impacts Plans

MasonsMarinia2Follow up on 11/16/15 Community Meeting Re-Mason's Marina Improvements

We want to thank all of you who participated in our November 16, 2015 Community Meeting relative to ideas for future improvements at Mason’s Marina. Below is a copy of the feedback from the meeting and from those who completed the feedback sheets.

In response to the feedback we have decided to defer the feasibility study and focus our current efforts on improvements to the docks and boat slips of Mason’s Marina and other improvements to address safety and environmental concerns including testing for soil and ground water contamination from the Mason’s Marina gas station.

We will also be giving consideration to the suggestions that we look for a contractor to operate the Mason’s Mini-market and that we provide information in our existing facility to the public regarding the bay and ocean ecosystems.

Our thanks to the Bodega Bay Chamber of Commerce and the Bodega Bay Fishermen’s Marketing Association for hosting the meeting and all of you for participating.
