Statter Harbor supports a major recreational and commercial vessel fleet in Auke Bay. The master plan effort reconfigured and expanded existing harbor and upland facilities to alleviate congestion and improve safety and efficiency. Improvements included a new boat launch ramp, passenger for hire float, improved uplands and parking, moorage improvements, and a waterfront pedestrian corridor in a park setting surrounding the project. Following the public process and master planning, an eight year permitting phase included development of an EIS and mitigation including habitat restoration of adjacent Bay Creek and the tidal area and reducing visual impacts. With permits in hand, construction documents were developed for this multi-phased project. Our work included uplands master planning, public involvement, permitting for wetlands, tidal and scenery resources, and construction documents for the landscape, waterfront park and walk, and site features. Constructed in 2016, the new facility meets the needs of harbor patrons and also becomes a community attraction for locals and visiors to access and enjoy Auke Bay.
