This ordinance would transfer $550,000 of state marine passenger fees from the Marine Park to Taku Improvements/Archipelago CIP to two related waterfront projects.
$500,000 will go to the South Franklin Sidewalk Safety and Capacity Improvements CIP to relocate light poles and install sidewalk stanchions on South Franklin, which will increase pedestrian safety along this busy transportation corridor.
$50,000 will go to the Seawalk Major Maintenance CIP to repair the seawalk between Taku Smokeries and the Fishermen’s Memorial.
Work on both of these projects is anticipated to be completed prior to the 2022 cruise ship season.
After this transfer, a balance of $496,000 will remain in the Archipelago CIP to finish the project.
This request was reviewed by the Public Works and Facilities Committee meeting on May 10, 2021.
