For the benefit of all slipholders, a copy of the Wharf developer's transition plans with graphic depictions of the Phase II, PUD plan is now in the laundry room. Please feel free to look at but leave the books there for other slipholders to also be able to review. This is similar to what can be found on the Wharf website, but may be easier for some to access.

He includes some wonderful quotes describing the live aboard community such as the following:
"More powerful is the camaraderie of the boating community. Live aboards are rather democratic, less concerned about careers than septic lines and bowsprits. Neighbors can be grocery clerks or senators, but conversations invariably return to matters aquatic. Decks are like old-fashioned stoops, and boaters find numerous opportunities to socialize."
Be sure to read the whole article and share it with your friends!

This cleanup is extremely important to us. The Southwest Waterfront is our neighborhood! GPSA is a group of silpholders that live and recreate in the Gangplank Marina. Since many of us live on our boats, we are especially concerned with our impact on the environment. We are also particularly in tune with the current conditions of the Southwest Waterfront. One area in dire need of a cleanup is located between the Seafood Market and the 14th Street Bridge. Please join us on April 4, 2009, and help us keep your DC Waterfront beautiful!

The blog, "Southwest ... the Little Quadrant the Could", is taking a poll on the various presentations for the Engine 13 (Squares 494 and 495). If you missed the meeting on Feb 25, they have plenty of information regarding the proposals and links to the developers websites. There have been 35 votes so far, and proposal 2 seems to be clearly ahead. What do you think about the new proposals?
