APPLICATIONS WHICH HAVE BEEN OUT-TO-NOTICE AND ARE BEFORE THE FULL COUNCIL FOR DECISION:
2019-03-026 DAVID & BARBARA BRAKENWAGEN — construct and maintain: A residential boating facility consisting of a fixed timber pier (4’ x 69’), 3.5’ x 26’ access ramp and 8’ x 18.5’ (148sf) terminal float. The total facility is proposed to extend ~75’ seaward of the cited MLW mark, requiring a 25’ length variance to RICRMP Section 1.3.1(D). Located at plat R-3, lot 6; 1 Sandpiper Road, Narragansett, RI.
2019-03-007 THE NARRAGANSETT BOAT CLUB — Construct and maintain an expansion to an existing commercial structure in tidal waters (CRMC Type 4), which supports the Narragansett Boat Club’s rowing facility. The expansion will include a 10’ x 20’ fixed pier and 8’ x 10’ gangway (ramp) to provide access to approximately 2,000 sq. ft. of proposed new floating docks. The docks will be anchored by 12” diameter Pearson pilings and arranged to provide a connection to the existing system of floating docks. Two existing dolphins (pile clusters) will be removed and relocated to the north of the proposed floating docks. A new/expanded structural perimeter limit (SPL) is proposed to encompass the facility consistent with §1.3.1(C)(4) of the CRMC Red Book (650-RICR-20-00- 1). The project requires a variance from § 1.3.1(C)(4) of this Part for establishing a SPL within the required setback from the federal navigation channel of 48 feet (which is based on 3x the authorized depth of 16’ = 48’). The SPL is proposed within 2 feet of the federal channel thereby requiring a 46’ variance. The US Army Corps of Engineers (ACOE) is concurrently reviewing this project. Pursuant to § 1.3.1(D)(5)(2) of the CRMC Red Book and § 1.4.2(F) of CRMC’s Management Procedures (650-RICR-10-00-1), the Narragansett Boat Club must obtain an ACOE authorization for this project before the CRMC can issue an assent. Located in the Seekonk River off of 2 River Road, Providence, RI.
