E <br />r <br />H-4 <br />DORY FISHERMENS' FLEET <br />It is a general policy of the City of Newport Beach that an area immediately west <br />of the Newport Pier be reserved for the Newport Dory Fishermens' Fleet The <br />dory fishing fleet, founded in 1891, is a historical landmark designated by the <br />Newport Beach Historical Society. <br />The City Council, in developing an official position with respect to the dory <br />fishing fleet, has examined and evaluated the following: <br />1. The historical significance and relative size of the fishing fleet; and <br />2. The desirability of preserving a small area of public beach for commercial <br />dory fishing fleet activity, primarily for catching and selling fish; and <br />3. The responsibility of. the City to protect the health, safety and welfare of <br />beach users and swimmers in the vicinity of the dory fleet <br />After considering these factors, the Newport Beach City Council has adopted <br />policy provisions concerning the Dory Fishermen' Fleet operations. <br />1. The dory fishing fleet zone is delineated by pilings erected by the City <br />and is reserved for full time Dory Fishermen who derive their livelihood <br />from commercial fishing. Dory Fishermen are required to maintain a <br />current commercial fishing license. <br />2. Dory Fishermen will have a current City business license. <br />3. Dory fishing vessels allowed to be launched and stored on the public <br />beach will be a traditional dory design vessel. <br />4. The dory fishing fleet zone is not to be used as a launching facility for <br />itinerant commercial or sport fishing enterprises.
