The public is invited to a Port of San Diego board workshop regarding future planning for the Central Embarcadero and baywide commercial fishing policy concepts.
The public workshop is scheduled 10 a.m. March 14 at the Port of San Diego Administration Building, 3165 Pacific Highway.
During the event, port commissioners will continue discussion of the Central Embarcadero that began with a public survey released in December, an open house on January 30, and a board workshop on February 12. Another board workshop held February 25 focused on the North Embarcadero. The events are part of the Port Master Plan Update, which has been a priority project since 2017.
The Central Embarcadero includes Seaport Village, The Fish Market restaurant, The Headquarters, and others. The Central Embarcadero is also a hub for the commercial fishing industry and its open-air seafood market, the Tuna Harbor Dockside Market.
Commercial fishing is a protected and priority use for the Port of San Diego, according to officials. The Port Act requires that the Port develop and maintain tidelands and navigable waters for the promotion of fisheries, along with commerce, navigation and recreation. The Port is the home of San Diego’s commercial fishing fleet with two designated commercial fishing harbors — Tuna Harbor and Driscoll’s Wharf.
The previous and upcoming workshops, part of the Port Master Plan Update that has been ongoing since 2017, is designed to guide the future of approximately 6,000 acres of land and water within the Port’s jurisdiction along the San Diego Bay waterfront.
