The Rules and Regulations Committee meeting for March 2012 was conducted in the conference room at the Marine Bureau.
The meeting was chaired by Mark Sandoval. Topics were as follows:
25 Foot Slips – Be Careful What You Ask For
At least 10, 25’ slips will be made available for permit in Alamitos Bay. First choice will be those boat owners with 25’ boats in 30’ slips.
Most of them are in Shoreline Marina.
Currently, 25’ boats placed in 30’ slips in Shoreline are paying the 25’ rate. If a boat owner who has a 25’ boat in a 30’ slip turns down the 25’
slip offer, the monthly rent will be increased to the 30’ rate. If all of the 25’ slips cannot be filled by current 25’ boat owners, the remaining
slips will be offered to those on the waiting list.
The owner of a 25’ boat complained to LBMBOA that they were being forced to put their boat in Shoreline as opposed to Alamitos Bay. The tenant was
assigned to a 30’ slip in Shoreline and paid a 25’ slip rate. After realizing the benefits of a larger slip with a nice concrete dock at a lower cost,
the complainant decided they would prefer to stay in the 30’ slip. The complainant did not withdraw the complaint from LBMBOA, so the issue was taken
to the Marine Bureau. To resolve the original complaint, the Marine Bureau made ten 25’ slips available in Alamitos Bay. Now boat owners who have 25’
boats in 30’ slips must choose between a 25’ slip in Alamitos Bay or pay the 30’ slip fee.
Bikes on the Mole Road – Be Nice
Mole Road Bike Path Side Walk 5 ml. an hour sign
Complaints have been received from marina customers who have been accosted by bicycle riders on the mole road leading to the Shoreline Marine Office.
Bicyclers have rudely and impolitely directed pedestrian marina customers to “get out of their way.” This has also happened on the sidewalk adjacent
and located on the north side of the mole road. Adjacent to the south side of the mole road is a bicycle path. However, bicyclers claim they can ride
their bikes anywhere and are not restricted to the bicycle path. The sidewalk on the north side of the mole road is clearly marked “No Bicycles.”
There is no current law that prevents bicycles from riding on the sidewalk except for motorized bikes. Markings in the area are clear as to where
bicycles should be. Mark Sandoval will request a City Attorney’s opinion as to what can and cannot be done about the problem. It may be possible to
pass an ordinance that prohibits bicycles on the mole road and sidewalk. That would best solve the problem
