SEABECK — A new dock approved by the Kitsap County hearing examiner could become the first overwater structure along an undeveloped stretch of Hood Canal shoreline near Stavis Bay. The dock, proposed by Tim and Brenda Berg, would be built at 18174 Stavis Bay Road. The 480-square-foot structure would include a grated deck to allow light to penetrate, and it would be built on eight centerline pilings to reduce the impacts.
Hearing Examiner Kimberly Allen approved a shoreline substantial development permit for the dock with eight conditions. Those conditions could be supplemented by other requirements if the project obtains separate permits from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
