If I want to build a dock...
Recently we've been looking at a couple of waterfront properties on STJ and STT online and I noticed that no one has their own dock. I looked around the coast of both islands and there's really nothing at all.
Automatically I start assuming that it must be a zoning question, but before I go diving into the code books, does anyone know why this is the case? Are we just not permitted to build one?
DPNR --CZM -- Corps of Engineers - USVI Legislature - Submerged Land permit
Hoops - not quick but in some instances possible.
Okay! I guess I ought to think of another idea 😀
There was a dock on St Thomas that was destroyed in a storm. When the owners tried to get a permit to replace it, they discovered that it had been built without a permit many years before. It took the a ton of money and time to redo it.
interesting, ive never seen private docks on stx
You might consider a ramp launch instead of a dock - depending on the vessel involved, you might not even need a permit for that.
