logoThe Oregon State Marine Board approved five boating facility grants during their quarterly Board meeting, held on October 26, in Lincoln City. Applicants requested $642,756 in state boater funds for $1,374,851 in project needs. These grants were awarded based on funding availability in Round 2 for the 2015-2017 biennium.

The City of Reedsport applied for a grant for $450,000 in state boater funds to purchase materials for boarding docks, precast concrete boat ramp planks and debris deflection boom sections in advance of construction at the Rainbow Plaza launch ramp. The City of Reedsport is contributing $40,000 for storage of the materials and administrative services. Fabrication historically has a long lead time, so having all of the materials on-site will expedite the construction process.

The Port of Alsea applied for a grant to dredge and repair the debris boom near the boat ramp. Marine Board staff have been working with the Port since 2010 to replace the boat ramp, boarding docks and excavate around the boat ramp, but the project was placed on hold while the Port pursued dredging permits. Sediment has continued to accumulate, especially during the 2015 winter storms where 9,000 cubic yards of sediment were deposited. The Board approved a not to exceed amount of $30,000 in state boater funds to match Port in-kind contributions of $11,595, and $14,487 in cash, combined with FEMA, Lincoln County Urban Renewal and OBDD stipend of $667,695 cash for a total match of $693,777.

The grant award is conditioned upon permits being issued no later than December 31, 2016 and using the state-owned dredge equipment from Coos Bay.

The Board also approved a grant to replace the pumpout and dump station at McCuddy’s Landing Marina (McMarine LLC), on the Multnomah Channel, near Scappoose. The Board authorized $8,000 in state boater funds and $24,000 in federal Clean Vessel Act funds to match McMarine LLC’s contribution of a sewer line installation and all administrative costs for the project.

Detroit Lake Marina and Kane’s Marina are working in partnership to obtain permits and approvals to dredge the marinas, install pilings, add additional gangways, and extend utility connections in order to increase the usability of the facilities in low water years. The pumpout at Detroit Lake Marina has also reached the end of its useful life and will be replaced. The concepts were presented at the Kaizen meeting to permit agencies, who recommended the project be broken into two phases. The Marine Board will be involved only with Phase I, which includes gangways, piling, utility extensions to provide extended access to the pumpout station during the peak boating season. Phase II (dredging) will be funded by other entities. In coordination with the Governor’s Regional Solutions Office, a grant was awarded jointly to the Marinas from Business Oregon Retention Service Program for $15,000 to Pacific Habitat to assist with obtaining permit approvals. Given complexities and timeframes to obtain the necessary permits for the project, the Board approved $8,900.88 in state boater funds and $26,702.62 in federal Clean Vessel Act funds to match Detroit Lake Marina LLC’s contribution of paying the permitting fees and all administration of the project. Additionally, the Board approved $2,921.88 in state boater funds and $8,765.62 in federal Clean Vessel Act funds to match Kane’s Marina LLC’s contribution of permitting and all administration of the project. Both grants have a cancellation provision that permits are issued or will be issued by the January Board meeting.
