A new maintenance facility is proposed for ferries operating in the central part of San Francisco Bay. The site of the facility will be on the south side of Alameda Point in the city of Alameda. Construction will require demolishing an old recreational dock that has become a haul out for harbor seals and a roosting site for birds. No plans currently exist to build a new haul out and roosting platform in the harbor. The video urges viewers to contact the agency in charge, the Water Emergency Transit Authority located in San Francisco. The harbor is an ideal location for a wildlife platform, since there is no marine traffic passing through. Demolition, dredging, and construction is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2014. The first public hearings on the project begin on January 6, 2014 at the offices of the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission, which will be issuing a permit for the facility. Later the project will be brought before the Alameda City Council. Alameda will be leasing the four-acre site to the ferry transit agency.
