Port of San Diego Seeks Land Development Input

The Port of San Diego is seeking ideas for the possible future development and preservation of 95 acres of undeveloped land on the shore of south San Diego Bay.

A meeting where interested parties can learn how to submit their project ideas for the land, which is known as Pond 20, is scheduled for 4:30 pm to 6 pm Mon., June 25, 2012 in the Dempsey Holder Safety Center, 950 Ocean Lane, Imperial Beach.

Information will also be available during the meeting on previous studies related to the area and comments the Port District already has received.

Pond 20 was purchased by the Port of San Diego about 14 years ago as part of an 836-acre land acquisition, but it wasn’t until earlier this year that the Board of Port Commissioners and the cities of San Diego and Imperial Beach approved an agreement to explore possible uses for the area.
The land is located in the City of San Diego but is included as part of the City of Imperial Beach Redevelopment Area. The Port District will consider all project concepts in conjunction with the cities of San Diego and Imperial Beach.

Conceptual plans may also be submitted directly to the Port District by 2 pm, Fri., Aug. 24, 2012. Letters may be submitted to: Pond 20 Letters of Interest, San Diego Unified Port District
