The Port of Los Angeles has released a Draft Port Master Plan for public review and input through April 8, 2013.

The Port Master Plan serves as a long-range plan to establish policies and guidelines for future development within the coastal zone boundary of the Port of Los Angeles. The Draft Port Master Plan combines the original 1980 Port Master Plan and its subsequent amendments into an updated and more concise document that reflects recent land use planning and projects, replaces outdated language, and provides an easy to understand, specific land use plan. After the public comment period, a final version of the Port Master Plan will be considered for approval by the Harbor Commission and California Coastal Commission later this year.

A copy of the document is available for public review at the following locations:
• Port of Los Angeles website at this link .
Port of Los Angeles Planning and Economic Development Division 
222 W. 6th Street, 9th Floor, Suite 900, San Pedro

During the public comment and review period, the Port will hold a public hearing on the Draft Port Master Plan before the Harbor Commission on Thursday, April 4, 8:30 a.m., at Banning’s Landing Community Center, 100 E. Water Street, in Wilmington.

Written comments should be postmarked by April 8, 2013 and sent to:
Michael Cham
Planning and Economic Development Division
Port of Los Angeles 
425 S. Palos Verdes Street
San Pedro, CA 90731

Written comments may also be sent via email to mcham@portla.org . Comments sent via email must include the project title in the subject line, attached to the email in letter format, and include a valid mailing address in the email. Questions regarding the Port Master Plan Update should be directed to the Port’s Planning and Economic Development Division at (310) 732-3850.
