Press Release: The California Boating and Waterways Commission (Commission) today approved $3.39 million in grants for upgrades to boat launching facilities in Ventura and San Bernardino counties. The projects and their improvements include:
Moabi Regional Park Boat Launching Facility – San Bernardino County
The Commission approved an $840,000 grant to San Bernardino County for parking lot and exit lane improvements, restroom replacement, a boat wash down area, related utilities, and incidental landscaping at the Moabi Regional Park Boat Launching Facility.
Ventura Harbor Boat Launching Facility – Ventura County
The Commission approved a $2,550,000 grant to the Ventura Port District to replace the nearly 50-year-old six-lane concrete boat launch ramp, reconfigure boarding floats, and provide slope protection at the Ventura Harbor Boat Launching Facility.
Grant and loan applications are submitted to the Department of Boating and Waterways and funding for approved projects is derived from the taxes paid by boaters
on the purchase of vessel gasoline and the repayment of principal and interest on department-made loans.
The department provides grants to a county, city, district or other public agency for the construction of small craft boating launching facilities and loans
to local agencies for the construction of small craft harbors. These grants and loans require the consent of the Boating and Waterways Commission
