A Newport Beach Harbor Commission subcommittee has been working on a second round of revisions to the section of Title 17 related to liveaboards in commercial marinas. The Harbor Commission had been revising the code as a whole and it was sent to the City Council in January. The revisions were approved expect for the sections dealing with liveaboards.
A major sticking point was if there should be a limit set on the number of liveaboards allowed in commercial marinas.
Over the past several months, the subcommittee held two public meetings and brought the suggestions that resulted to the full Harbor Commission on Sept. 9.
