Langley council to meet with port officials
October 2, 2011 · 9:53 AM
The Langley City Council will hold a special joint meeting and workshop with Port of South Whidbey commissioners next week to talk about the upgrade of the Langley Marina.
The meeting will be held at 3 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 5 at city hall.
Port Manager Ed Field said port officials will present the latest vision of what’s proposed for the harbor expansion project.
“The city has a huge role,” Field said, noting Langley’s involvement in the ongoing permitting process.
“They are certainly our partner in the overall project. We need them on board to make this happen,” he said.
The latest proposal for expanding the small boat harbor involves repositioning the 400-foot breakwater that was purchased from Bremerton in 2007, and anchoring sections of the breakwater outside the existing 38-slip marina for use by cruise ships and other larger vessels.
The port took over the Langley Marina in January 2009. The city council is expected to talk about its agreement covering the boat harbor and takeover issues at the council’s regular meeting Monday, Oct. 3. The meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. at city hall.
