Anyone interested in contributing input to the future design of the A/B Dock at the Port of Port Townsend Boat Haven has until Wednesday, order Feb. 25, to voice opinions to the commissioners.

Deputy Director Jim Pivarnik said that the choices for the A/B Dock design have been narrowed to two options (visit http://portofpt.com/renovation.htm to view the layout proposals).

Pivarnik said most people who have vocalized opinions so far have leaned toward the “4c” model, with more small slips, rather than the “T1″ model, with more medium slips.

Both models would eliminate 20-foot slips but keep some 25-foot, 30-foot and 35-foot slips and even add 27-foot slips. The difference in the models is the number of each as well as the number of 40-foot and 45-foot slips.

Since the layouts were initially presented to the public, many in the community have expressed the desire to preserve Port Townsend’s traditional small-boat-friendly model.

The decision vote is on the Feb. 25 commission agenda. The meeting is at 6:30 p.m. in the port commission chambers at Point Hudson.
