The Port of San Diego apprises it is to host separate open house events for the public to provide feedback on its long-range vision and 'Integrated Port Master Plan Update' process.

The Port of San Diego, the fourth largest in California, is in the midst of developing a 50-year Vision Plan as part of the Port Master Plan Update to help set the course for future land and water uses in San Diego Bay.

At each open house, port consultants will present an overview of the Vision process and input received over the last six months during the first-phase visioning effort. In addition, a preliminary draft set of guiding principles will be available to the public for input. The guiding principles are important as they will help inform the next phases of this multi-year master planning process.

The open houses will be held on the following dates at the following locations:
    •    April 22, 2014
Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center
140 East 12th Street, National City, Ca. 91950
