San Diego Invites Public Comment

By Karen Robes Meeks

The Port of San Diego is inviting the public to weigh in on the future of the Embarcadero area of San Diego’s waterfront. The new survey will help prioritize future amenities.

The data collected will be incorporated into the Port Master Plan Update, a blueprint for developing the 6,000 acres of waterfront property over the next 50 years.

“The port is seeking feedback on the public’s preferred uses for the Embarcadero, specifically the North and Central Embarcadero, because of the great interest both residents and visitors have in this highly visible area,” read the press release issued by the port.

The feedback could include “park space, public art, seating areas, retail and other businesses, and ways of engaging with the bay,” the port said. The survey also asks questions about public parking, driving and other ways of maneuvering around the waterfront.

The survey will be available until Jan. 31 and can be found at
