Fire Safety and the Proposed Cypress Creek Marina

As you may be aware (and if not, keep reading!) there is a very large marina (over 250 boats) planned for Cypress Creek Cove, to be located in part along the preserve just below and adjacent to our neighborhood. Setting aside for the moment the issues of crowding, changing levels and similar, there is a justified concern that such a marina, if built, would represent an extreme fire hazard to the residents of the Comanche Trail community.

This calls into question the proposed marina: Since I have lived in Austin there have been multiple marina fires, with some marinas burning more than once! In all case, the marinas are generally total losses, and the fire is contained only because the marinas themselves are located on water and away from land other than at the access point to the marina. These marinas are directly accessible by vehicle, so fire fighting equipment can be brought in to control the fire and protect nearby land and buildings. The proposed marina, by comparison, can be reached only by boat and is bounded by the steep and rugged BCP, making land-based fire control difficult if not impossible.
