SAN DIEGO — The Port of San Diego has published the comprehensive Integrated Planning process to update its Port Master Plan for the approximately 6,000 acres of land and water within its jurisdiction.
A Port Master Plan serves as a blueprint for future development and is similar to what is known as a General Plan in a city or county. The Port’s Master Plan Update will facilitate a balanced approach to land and water planning.
The Port’s Integrated Planning Process began in 2013 and has included extensive public outreach. On Nov. 17, 2015 the Board of Port Commissioners accepted an Integrated Planning Framework Report intended to provide guidance in the preparation of the Port Master Plan Update document.
Port staff will use the completed report to begin drafting the Port Master Plan, which will be followed by review pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act and the California Coastal Act. There will be additional opportunities for public input throughout the remainder of the process.
The Framework Report is the last step in the visioning phase of Integrated Planning. It has emerged from a comprehensive process of analysis and investigation–all informed by extensive public outreach, including over 100 interviews with stakeholders and agencies, public workshops and Board meetings.
