Input sought on updated Pete’s Harbor plan
November 09, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Redwood City is holding two workshops to let the public see firsthand how the development plan for Pete’s Harbor has significantly changed between its first controversial submission and the latest design calling for 411 units and a commercial marina at the former floating community.

The current proposal, submitted in July 2013, includes the residential units and associated parking, some open space and amenities including a spur of the Bay Trail and a commercial marina accommodating up to 65 boats.

Developer Paul Powers had planned to maintain an outer marina of about 150 slips but the revised design calls for 65 available to the public. While reduced, the amount is still greater than the zero he originally suggested. The original 2012 proposal called only for a private marina but Powers eventually added public slips in the wake of community outcry. The addition actually spurred the City Council in May to send the plan back to the Planning Commission for reconsideration because of the significant changes.

At workshops Saturday and Wednesday night, the city plans to explain the proposal, answer questions and collect input which will be compiled for a town hall meeting later this month. The workshops are also in anticipation of the proposed project’s return trip to the Planning Commission.

The workshops are only the latest step in an ongoing debate over the future of the area. The public fight began last fall when owner Paula Uccelli informed tenants of the possible sale and their pending eviction from the boating community. Occupy Redwood City jumped on board the debate and several tenants sued Uccelli, claiming the plan to transfer the harbor lease to Powers and the Pauls Corp. was illegal because it lacked a commercial marina. The suit was dropped after a judge refused to temporarily halt the evictions. Uccelli then terminated her lease with the State Lands Commission and removed the docks.

The workshops are 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Nov. 9 at Seaport Conference Center, 459 Seaport Court and 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 13 at Sandpiper Community Center, 797 Redwood Shores Parkway. A town hall meeting on the community input from the workshops is 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 20 in Council Chambers, 1017 Middlefield Road, Redwood City.
