Thank you to everyone who joined the Port of San Diego and the City of Chula Vista on Monday, November 18 for the final Design Workshop for the future Harbor and Sweetwater Parks. We appreciate and are reviewing your feedback on the latest design concepts.
If you weren’t able to attend or would like to review the presentations for either or both parks, you may view them at portofsandiego.org/chulavistabayfront. If you have feedback or comments that may help guide any additional refinements of the concepts, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org through Sunday, December 1, 2019.
The Port and the City are committed to a transparent and open outreach process that has invited community members to share their vision for Harbor and Sweetwater Parks and play a critical role in the development of each park’s design. Through this process, the Port, the City and the design teams have learned about how the community desires to see their recreational wants and needs balanced with equally important efforts to preserve Chula Vista’s natural resources and improve and protect waterfront access for future generations. Those learnings and preferences have been incorporated into the current design concepts for each park.
Once further refinements are made and schematic designs are completed, Port staff will conduct environmental review under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and anticipates returning to the Board of Port Commissioners to request authorization for Coastal Development Permits for the parks in 2020.
The future Harbor and Sweetwater Parks will account for more than half of the new park space planned for the Chula Vista Bayfront. Given their location, their design will be pivotal to guiding the look and feel of these new spaces for Chula Vista residents and regional visitors to enjoy for years to come.
We thank you again for your participation and continued engagement in this process.
