At a meeting today in Sacramento, the California Boating and Waterways Commission approved a $15,000,000 Department of Boating and Waterways small craft harbor construction loan. The proposed project is:

Los Angeles County - City of Long Beach Downtown Marinas

A phase-four loan of $15,000,000 to the City of Long Beach for a $31,718,000 project to improve the Long Beach Shoreline Marina and the Rainbow Marina (formerly known as the Shoreline Village Marina), collectively known as the Downtown Marinas. The project includes demolishing and replacing a docks system, replacing utilities, installing new piling, widening and replacing handicapped-accessible gangways and docks, and ancillary items.
Department loans require the consent of the seven-member Boating and Waterways Commission, appointed by the Governor. Funding for the projects is derived from the taxes paid by boaters on the purchase of gasoline for their vessels.
