Harbormaster Office to Temporarily Close; Will Relocate to the Veterans’ Services Center on Emerson

Mayor Sefatia Romeo Theken today announced that the Harbormaster’s Office is set to close the week of October 7, 2019 and will re-open at a new, temporary location beginning Tuesday, October 15.

During that week Harbormaster operations will commence remotely. In the event of an emergency residents and businesses should call 978-423-4165; for non-emergencies please email tciarametaro@gloucester-ma.gov and Harbormaster staff will respond accordingly.

The Harbormaster’s Office, which is currently located at 19 Harbor Loop, is scheduled to move to the Veterans’ Services Center at 12 Emerson Avenue. The move is necessary to relocate the Harbormaster office and operations in preparation for construction of an improved Harbormaster Office and Visiting Boater Center.

Harbormaster TJ Ciarametaro said, “During construction of the new Harbormaster facility and Visiting Boating Center our operations will commence uninterrupted. Our staff will continue to provide, albeit from a different location, residents and businesses with prompt and attentive service related to their boating and natural resource needs.”

Anyone who has business with the Harbormaster’s Office is advised to visit their office before close of business on Friday, October 4. Residents or businesses who need service on or after Oct. 15, during normal business hours, should visit them at 12 Emerson Avenue.

Earlier this year, the City of Gloucester was awarded a $1 million grant from the Seaport Economic Council (SEC). The grant was used for final design and the upcoming construction of an improved Harbormaster Office and Visiting Boater Center. The enhanced facilities will allow the Harbormaster to meet the increasing community demand on the office including the response of safety calls, staffing special events that take place on the water, and handling of the growing number of visiting and local boaters.

Construction for the improved Harbormaster Office and Visiting Boating Center is set to begin on Tuesday, October 15. The new facility is expected to open late May/early June 2020.
