Statter Harbor phase two up for reconsideration

After celebrating the completion of phase one for the Statter Harbor master plan, the Planning Commission did not grant the conditional use permit necessary for the project’s continuation into phase two. However, it is up for reconsideration on May 28.


The commission heard concerns voiced by the Auke Bay Tower Condominium Association that worried the property would face devaluation and tenants would suffer from increased noise levels.

The permit was denied on May 15.

A halt in progression for the master plan comes as a blow to the four-phase project and a disappointment to Docks and Harbors who underwent a four-year environmental assessment of the land before beginning the project.

“If we don’t get phase two built we’ll just live with the existing inadequate boat launch facility,” said Docks and Harbors Port Director Carl Uchytil.

The commission believed that the project was out of harmony by failing to provide adequate green space, parkland and pedestrian access as part of the project.

A special meeting of the Docks and Harbor board will meet Thursday night in the Assembly chamber at
