Racks are available at the marina and other locations for storing kayaks and canoes, for an annual fee. Check with the HPMA office regarding fees and availability.
When Quadrant developed Hartstene Pointe back in the 70s, many property purchasers believed they were promised a marina. A settlement was reached and a 20 slip marina was built.
Several years later property owner surveys went out seeking interest to enlarge that marina but the surveys failed. So 100 property owners put forth the funds ($400,000) to build the current 110 slips.
The agreement made with HPMA was that those property owners hold the leases for 25 years and the marina's operation would be maintained by the lessees at no cost to HPMA. That time was extended in 1996 for another 10 years, until May, 2017 because the leaseholders put forth all the funds to pay for the dredging ($250,000).
In 2004, a policy was adopted that would continue to renew the leases with HPMA beyond 2017. The moorage slip assessments paid annually by the lessees supports the maintenance, insurance, office assistance, Harbormaster, and Washington State Shoreline Lease. Residual funds are set aside for future dredging, major repairs, and other required maintenance.
