Parking in the Marina

Parking has always been a challenge at the marina, but even more so these days with the construction/paving and Golden Gardens closure.  A big thank you to the Port for closing off some of the entrances, the additional signage and increased enforcement.

As the paving project moves south, please be aware of the closures and patiently adapt to the frustrations and inconveniences that ensue.  They are only temporary and things will be much better when they are done.

New parking enforcement will be taking place soon…please pay attention to the changes.  As recently announced by the Port, (contact your dock captain if you haven’t heard):

  • The outer 2 rows (white markings) near the street will be free for marina guest parking. All else (blue markings) will be paid permit parking.
  • The 1 free parking 2020 permit will be mailed out to tenants that haven’t received theirs yet. The 2nd one can be paid for over the phone and picked up in the office-call first. You have til June 15th to get your permits and after that, the Port will begin towing.

A reminder-vehicles need to be moved every 15 days.  If you will be gone cruising for longer than that, please contact the marina office and then park in the outer rows as courtesy to your neighbors that are still here.

Updated Shilshole Procedures/Closures

Shilshole tenants just received this notice via email which will help explain the closure of some of the parking lot entrances and the plaza, etc….

From the marina staff..

We all want go get outside on these nice days, but according to the governor: “If you need to take a car, it’s probably too far. Don’t recreate with those outside your household. Practice strong social distancing and stay at least 6-feet apart when getting fresh air.”

We are immediately implementing the following measures at SBM to support Governor Jay Inslee’s “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” emergency order.

• Continuing to clean all public areas two times a day.
• Non-liveaboard moorage customers should only visit SBM if your trip is essential.
• Closing public access to the A-Pier and X Dock.
• Placing partial restrictions on access to the parking lot. All vehicle entrances and exits will remain locked except for those immediately north and south of the SBM main building.
• Controlling pedestrian access to the SBM promenade.
• Limiting access to picnic tables and benches along the pedestrian thoroughfare.
• Closing public restrooms at SBM promenade.

Operational staff are on-site and can assist with normal operational requests. Please be patient with staff members as we exercise critical measures of social distancing. Thank you for your patience in this challenging time.

Security on your dock…

During these challenging times, there are many people down from the city to get some fresh air, walk the boardwalk and check out the boats.  Some will tailgate onto the docks.  Many non-resident tenants have also come down to their boats lately to spend some time.

As liveaboard residents it is incumbent upon us to “know our neighbors”. When you see someone “new” on the dock-especially if they are “just looking around”…be it guests of a neighbor or new tenants, introduce yourself and ask them “how can I help you?”, “who are you looking for?”.
