San Diego Development Deadline

By Karen Robes Meeks

Stakeholders will have more time to provide feedback on the future of waterfront development. The Board of Port Commissioners for the Port of San Diego agreed to extend the timeline of the Port Master Plan Update to allow more input of key policy issues.

As a result, the Draft Port Master Plan Update is expected to be released in October.

“We are focused on completing a Port Master Plan Update with clear guidance on land use that will give greater certainty to developers and other plan users going forward,” said Port Commissioner Ann Moore. “As we pursue this worthy goal, we want to do it right and that means taking the time we need to engage our stakeholders.”

About 6,000 acres encompasses the Integrated Planning initiative, a roadmap for baywide planning and development for the next 50 years. That initiative will result in an update to the Port Master Plan, which will “create certainty for developers and other community members by codifying a vision for how future projects will fulfill public goals, including public realm uses such as parks,” according to the port.
