Advocacy Alert – City Dock Redevelopment


The video of the June 8 special work session is now available to watch here.

The City of Annapolis is preparing to embark upon the greatest public infrastructure project in the history of our historic town.

Join us this Thursday, June 8, 2023 at 3 pm in the City Council Chambers to hear from City leadership about their vision to transform City Dock at a special work session.

Historic Annapolis is in full support of City Dock redevelopment. We support resiliency efforts to address the threats of sea level rise, and we support enhancing the downtown waterfront as a community center for residents and visitors alike. 

City Dock is at the heart of Annapolis – a national historic treasure – and a gateway to the Chesapeake Bay. As such, it is critical that this major planning effort does not diminish views to and from the water nor compromise the small-town feel that we love. As stated by the mayor early in the planning process, “we must protect and enhance the viewshed of the water and the scenic vista.” (Capital Gazette, October 21, 2018)

Be a part of our city’s future! Public involvement greatly enhances all community planning. Your attendance at the special work session on Thursday, June 8 will prove public interest in the future of City Dock. The work session will be held from 3 pm – 5 pm in the City Council Chambers (160 Duke of Gloucester Street). We strongly encourage that you attend in person or online via Youtube or Facebook.

While public comment will not be permitted, we encourage you to voice your concerns and suggestions to elected and appointed officials following the meeting.
