Richardson Bay, home to boats, boaters, and marine wildlife, remains a scenic part of our maritime heritage and has provided safe anchorage for boats for over a century. Today, it is one of the last remaining anchorages in San Francisco Bay. Redwood City cleared its sloughs of anchored vessels in 1997. The closure of the Alviso Slough followed, then Clipper Cove at Treasure Island, the delta shore of Contra Costa County and most recently, the Oakland Estuary in 2013.
Richardson’s Bay has seen an increasing number of vessels arrive as other anchorages around the bay have closed, and the impacts of the economic downturn have contributed to a dramatic increase in the number of abandoned and derelict vessels.
This facilitated workshop will gather diverse members of the Richardson Bay community to explore the many issues affecting the Bay and the people who live and work on and around the anchorage. The Board seeks community input from all stakeholders to prioritize the issues and work together to seek solutions.
