This assessment is a necessary first step in <br />looking at potential options for future uses in the study area. <br /> <br />It has been over 13 years since a comprehensive study on the Marina area was accomplished. <br />One task of the proposed assessment is to take a snapshot of the area, characterizing the existing <br />environmental factors within the proposed study area. A second task of the assessment will be to <br />contact 2-6 other Bay Area marinas that have undergone or are contemplating major land use <br />changes (including one that has maintained its harbor, and one that has closed its harbor). <br />Thirdly, there are at least nine agencies (at federal, state and 10ca11eve1s) that either have direct <br />jurisdiction over portions of the Marina, or may be considered a responsible agency for any <br />future changes that may be proposed. The consultant will contact applicable agencies to <br />determine constraints and opportunities based on the agencies' policies and procedures. A formal <br />assessment report will be prepared, documenting the consultant's findings, and outlining <br />implications with respect to redevelopment options. A draft report will be presented to the <br />Marina Committee for review (consultants anticipate two-three months for completion of the <br />assessment). A final report will then be forwarded to the City Council. <br /> <br />BACKGROUND <br /> <br />The City Council has established the Marina Committee, a standing committee which started <br />monthly meetings in March 2007.
