National City to receive grant for event promoting boating safety, fishing
National City’s City Council approved on April 18 a resolution to accept grant funds from the Port of San Diego to help fund Aquatic Adventures by the Bay at Pier 32 Marina and Peppers Park. The event, held May 27 at National City Aquatic Center, is free and offers attendees the opportunity to participate in youth fishing, kayaking and standup paddleboard activities. Participants can also learn about boating and water safety.
National City will receive up to $10,000 in total grants from the Port of San Diego’s Tidelands Activation Program. The port district’s sponsorship would specifically provide as much as $5,000 in financial support and offer $5,000 in service fee waivers.
