The applicant, Cape Harbor Holdings LLC, is proposing to construct a new marine terminal and boat yard on a former seafood and grain offloading facility in Cape Charles, Virginia. Project components include several shoreline stabilization structures (revetments, sills, and a sheet pile bulkhead); a loading platform; eight timber dolphins; a 600-ton travel lift; piers and boat slips for staging vessels; and 1.5 acres of mechanical dredging. Approximately 0.86 of non-tidal wetlands and 2000 square feet of tidal wetlands will be impacted by the project. Non-tidal wetland impacts may be compensated for with the purchase of commercial credits if available, or through permittee-responsible mitigation. The tidal impacts will be mitigated through the construction of a living shoreline.
