TheDay.com: With representatives of the Coast Guard and its museum association in the front row of Council Chambers, the City Council on Monday night [March 17] unanimously approved the sale of roughly 16,000 square feet of downtown waterfront property—including about 10,000 square feet to the Coast Guard to build its $80 million National Coast Guard Museum.

In addition to approving the sale of land near Union Station and City Pier to the Coast Guard for $1, the council also approved the sale of approximately 6,155 square feet to Cross Sound Ferry for about $123,100. Cross Sound Ferry is expected to use the land to build a new ferry terminal.
