Local business owner Steve Cullen is creating a new recreational dock along Youngs Bay.
Cullen owns a plot of land along Olney Avenue east of the Astoria Recreation Center.
The Cullen Pier Restoration Project would connect two existing piers jutting out from the property, adding nearly 6,000 square feet. The project would also replace up to 60 historical pilings.
Cullen, who owns agricultural bagging company Versa Corp., in February secured a building permit for a new storage building at the site.
Cullen was not immediately available for comment. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is taking comments on the project until Aug. 1.
