The first meeting of the MVMS Ad-Hoc Committee was Monday, March 24th in the Crystal Cove Conference Room (Bay 2 D, second floor about mid–complex) at City Hall. Two of three Harbor Commission volunteers, Commissioners Avery and McIntosh, attended. Others included Chris Miller and Shannon Levin of the City’s Harbor Resources department, about half a dozen members of the public, and two journalists representing The Log and The Register. The committee is in the process of defining its goal. Roughly, that goal is the test deployment of several floating docks, likely secured by screw–type moorings, in Newport Harbor. They seek permit holders to volunteer their moorings for the test. In the first weeks the committee will address broader details such as dock type, method of fixture, and location.

The committee was made aware of mooring holder priorities and input about the floating docks and invited to visit this website for particulars. A MVMS
