$4.5 Million is Needed for Phase III
Phases I & II are Complete – $8 Million Already Invested The Mathews Land Conservancy (MLC), through foresight and fortunate financial support, was able to rescue the Williams Wharf site from an industrial operation that would have forever altered the East River. The MLC achieved the following goals in Phase I and II:
- Acquiring all waterfront property at Williams Wharf
- Secured complex permitting for marine construction
- Making careful and informed decisions regarding design and materials
- All work done at Williams Wharf is of industrial grade marine construction.
- All phases of this project are designed to endure for generations.
Phase III: The Completion of the Maritime Education and Rowing Complex. This Relies on Your Support! Construction of the Complex has begun. In preparation for Phase III, the foundation has been laid and the framework and roof are completed. The third and final $4.5 Million phase of the Williams Wharf restoration project is the completion of the Owens Complex and its site work. This phase will complete the Maritime Education classrooms, meeting and presentation spaces and decks and the Rowing Facility components. The energy systems will be installed (solar, wind and geothermal), and the final site work for wetlands and docks will be finished. With your help, we can positively impact people and families with stimulating hands-on maritime education, aquaculture programs, community events, and a multitude of on-water or outdoor athletic programs that are complementary to the Chesapeake Bay.
