The City Council has okayed a permit to allow upgrades and expansion of Skyline Marina.

The Council on Monday approved a shoreline substantial development permit (SSDP) to permit the replacement and expansion to existing docks and floats that would increase moorage from 50 boat slips to 55 slips.

Construction and deconstruction activities are expected to last approximately 6-8 weeks.

The city had earlier approved plans to allow a new development on Skyline Way which include offices, a restaurant and a residence to be build in three phases on the site of the former Flounder Bay Cafe.
