Yes, with the provision that if it turns out to be the nightmare the Stockade residents envision - and let police reports be the objective factor - after a year it be moved.

this is a huge waste of tax payers money.its will cost mony to be built but after that city employees will have to take it out of the water every fall store it some where and then put it back in the water every spring.A stairway that will withstand winter ice and sping flooding will also have to be built. Where this dock will be located they will have to use a crane to do this. who will enforce the no over night docking are we going to have SPD put on a shore patrol.No boats on the river are going to use a dock that does not have gas,food,beer and bait at the end of it.If a couple guys with kayaks and canoes in the stockade want a dock they should use there money and build one and not hustle the Tax payers out of theirs
