Community encouraged to help shape vision for boat launch area

SUISUN CITY — As part of the continuing transformation of the Suisun City Waterfront District, the Community Development Department will host a focused brainstorming session designed to elicit public input on future uses of the southern waterfront.

Known formally as a charrette, the session will bring together Suisun City residents, land use professionals, urban planners and City staff to create a shared recommendation on the best use for the area now dominated by the Suisun City Boat Launch.

The charrette will take place at 7 p.m. Jan. 22 at the Suisun City Hall Council Chamber. Everyone with a point of view on that particular part of the Waterfront District is invited to participate.

In October, the Community Development Department issued a request for proposals seeking design firms to assist in developing a cohesive plan for developing the waterfront area south of Walnut Street and east of Kellogg Street. The area includes Adams Marine, the boat launch, a boat fuel dock, a PG&E transformer, a fishing dock, and entrances to the Suisun Wildlife Center and the Peytonia Slough Ecological Reserve.
