Marinas & Community Docks Stakeholders Process : 

Marinas & Community Docks Stakeholders Process

Slide2: 

The Coastal Marshlands Protection Committee (CMPC) is charged with protecting the tidal marshes and water bottoms through permitting responsibility for waterfront development under the Coastal Marshlands Protection Act, (O.C.G.A. 12-5-280 et. seq.) including marinas and community docks.

Slide3: 

Examination of Dock Permitting The Coastal Marshlands Protection Committee has tasked the Department with undertaking a facilitated stakeholders dialogue to: Examine permitting practices for marinas and community docks To propose standards or rules for permitting these type projects under the Coastal Marshlands Protection Act, while accommodating the uniqueness of projects.

Slide4: 

  Two fold purpose: To achieve consistency and predictability for the general public, regulated public, Committee, and staff. To enhance the efficiency in moving a permit application through processing.

Slide5: 

Project scope and timeline:   May to mid-November: Stakeholder work sessions; full day; open to public to observe. May 10 & 23rd: Town hall meetings (Sav & Bwk) to solicit public comments on issues and suggestions for proposed changes. Mid-December: Present draft standards to the Committee January: Solicit comments on proposal thru 2 town hall meetings. February: Convene stakeholders to review public feedback and refine proposal. March: CRD staff present final stakeholder recommended standards to Committee, and forward to Board as appropriate.

Interest Groups Represented

Slide7: 

Facilitators: UGA’s Carl Vinson Institute of Government, Community and Regional Development Division Courtney Tobin Dennis Epps Jan Coyne

Slide8: 

Coastal Marshlands Protection Permits Issued (2000 – Present) * Permits may include more than one facility

Slide9: 

Dock Facilities in Coastal Georgia Basic characterization of coastal marinas and community docks: How many registered boats do we have, where are they located and what sizes are they? Where are the marinas located? What size is the typical Georgia marina and community facility? Can we characterize community facilities?

Slide10: 

(Total = 30,709)

Slide11: 

(Less than 16’) (16’ – 26’) (26’ – 40’) (Over 40’)

Types of Dock Development: 

Types of Dock Development Public Marina Private Marina (Community or Club) Community Dock Private Recreational Dock

Slide14: 

A marina is a dock having more than 500 linear feet of docking space [Coastal Marshlands Protection Act, O.C.G.A. Section 12-5-287 (a)]. What distinguishes between a marina and community dock?

Public Marinas Facilities providing recreational mooring to the general public on a first-come, first-serve basis.: 

Public Marinas Facilities providing recreational mooring to the general public on a first-come, first-serve basis. Public Marinas Facilities providing > 500 linear feet recreational mooring to the general public on a first-come, first-serve basis, or providing mooring, repairs etc. for commercial vessels.

Public Marina Facilities : 

Public Marina Facilities Total Linear Footage of Mooring Space by County, All Marinas Combined

Public Marina Facilities : 

Public Marina Facilities Average Linear Footage of Mooring Space Per Marina by County

Slide18: 

Average Linear Footage of Mooring Space For Public Marinas In Coastal Georgia ~ 1,492 Linear Feet

Slide19: 

Private Community Marinas Facilities providing > 500 linear feet recreational mooring at a subdivision or community; generally entails a paid membership or fee basis (e.g. yacht club; fishing club; dockaminium).

Slide20: 

Community dock is a dock < 500 linear feet shared by more than two parcels; often a subdivision or community amenity providing water access for residents who are not riparian (waterfront) landowners; may or may not entail a fee; often day use only.

Slide21: 

Private Marina & Community Dock Facilities1 1 Permitted Since 2002

Permitting practices of the CMPC to minimize marshland impacts:: 

Permitting practices of the CMPC to minimize marshland impacts: Reducing footprint of dock structures in coastal marshlands (design changes, size limitations, moving non-water dependent activities to upland) Reducing number of structures crossing coastal marshlands (encouraging multi-family or community docks, reducing/eliminating private docks in favor of community docks)

Private Docks Evaluated in Conjunction with Community Facilities: 

Private Docks Evaluated in Conjunction with Community Facilities In evaluating a marina or community dock the Committee often grants public access to more people than are waterfront landowners Additional impacts result- beyond the impacts expected from private docks in the community To fulfill the responsibility of conserving the public’s marshlands for this generation and future generations, the Committee considers the total impacts from all dock structures at buildout

Slide25: 

> 90% have one of the following: Deed/covenant restrictions eliminating or reducing private docks Multi-family docks in lieu of private docks Riparian areas commonly owned (no private docks) Nearly all 33 permits reflect design changes/reductions in facility size to minimize marsh impacts Private Community Docks Private Community Marinas Permitting 2000-Present

Slide26: 

Dock Management Approaches of Other States Square Footage of Structure allowed for each linear foot of shoreline Number of slips based on ratio of approved upland units –sliding scale Number of slips based on possible number of private single-family docks and in lieu of all private docks Structures limited to occupying a minimum percentage of the width of the waterway Increasingly stringent criteria for pristine areas and areas of significant wildlife/endangered species use Most have marina siting guidelines and some form of master dock planning for subdivisions
