This is a page 2 item on the VMRC Agenda for March 29th. Page 2 items are big dollar projects that staff would nominally approve but to much money is involved. If there were objections they would have gone to public hearing. Similar items are things like Navy Pier application, VEPCO power line projects, etc.

This is in place of (or maybe to complement) the use of the public landing area in Lynnhaven for this purpose. A Kayak launch sounds good to me.


2F. CITY OF VIRGINIA BEACH, #10-1651, requests authorization to construct a permanent dredged material offloading facility and basin, and a public canoe/kayak launching pier in Thalia Creek near Virginia Beach Boulevard. The facility will include a 20-foot long by 60-foot wide concrete dredge material transfer pier, including a 20-foot by 30-foot L head, associated fender piles, and two seven-pile dolphin clusters. The transfer facility will require the mechanical dredging of 9,525 cubic yards of State-owned submerged bottom with anticipated future maintenance to establish maximum depths of minus six (-6) feet at mean low water that will connect to the existing City channel within the Western Branch of the Lynnhaven River in Virginia Beach. The canoe/kayak launching pier will consist of a 10-foot by 70-foot gangway leading to a 12-foot by 60-foot floating timber pier. Staff recommends approval for a five-year permit due to proposed maintenance dredge cycles.
