Clearwater Seeks Citizen Input On Dock Length

The Clearwater City Council is looking into whether city code as it pertains to dock length needs to be changed. The Clearwater Gazette reported that a permit was requested for an 111 ft dock in Clearwater Bay. A neighbor opposes the length, sighting poor visibility at night for boat traffic among other issues. The Community Development Board has to approve the request before the county will consider issuing a permit. If you have a suggestion for changes to the city code for docks you can email the City Council

Long Wait List for New Marina

The new downtown marina in Clearwater has a wait list of 400 people - and only 129 slips. If you have any interest in a slip you better get in line. Although it may seem fruitless at this point, the idea of requiring a deposit for a slip is being kicked around. It is expected that if folks have to put up some hard cash (say a $100) to hold their reservation, a lot of them drop off the list.
