The Ventura Port District’s Board of Port Commissioners was presented with a staff report on the potential replacement of four docks at Harbor Village Marina and a commercial fishing pier during it April 25 meeting.
Commissioners also received a report on the condition of the Fish Pier at their May 9 meeting.
Harbor Village Docks C, D, G and H are wooden and have been in place for about 40 years. Port district staff described the wooden docks as being “in a very substandard condition.”
Four other docks (E, F, I and a portion of D) were replaced with a concrete system nearly one decade ago.
Replacing the remaining docks with a concrete system could cost about $4.5 million, according to port district staff.
The port district, meanwhile, has been trying to extend the commercial fishing pier’s service life for more than 10 years now. Replacing the pier with a like-sized structure could cost somewhere between $3 million and $5 million to build.
The port district will continue its current analysis of the commercial fish pier and weigh multiple dock replacement scenarios.
