    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The City and Borough of Juneau Docks & Harbors Board will hold an Operations and Planning Committee meeting on Wednesday evening.

    The meeting, which is set for 5 p.m., will be held via Zoom. The meeting number is 811 5407 2938, and the passcode is 598196.

    The committee will hear a presentation regarding Goldbelt's Seadrome Development Plan by Steve Sahlender, vice president of the Goldbelt Alaska Group.

    Goldbelt plans to covert the Seadrome building in downtown Juneau to a small cruise ship dock.

    Goldbelt is proposing that a new three-story facility be built at the corporation's Seadrome building. The dock would accommodate yachts and small cruise ships of up to 273 feet. Part of the property will also be modified into expanded parking and staging.

    Since the ownership in parcels of the property is a mix between Goldbelt and the CBJ, Port Director Carl Uchityl said that will need to be resolved.

    The committee will also hear presentations from city planner Beth McKibben on the Blueprint Downtown Area Plan, and a dock electrification study by Uchytil and the port engineer.
