PORT SEEKING PARK INPUT ON CHULA VISTA BAYFRONT PROJECT
The Chula Vista Bayfront project is one of the last truly significant large-scale waterfront developments on the West Coast. At approximately 535 acres, the project seeks to transform a largely vacant and underutilized industrial landscape into a thriving recreational, residential and resort destination on the Chula Vista waterfront. When complete, the public will enjoy more than 200 acres of parks and open space, a shoreline promenade, walking trails, RV camping, shopping, dining and more. While providing long-awaited, enhanced shoreline recreation and an active, commercial harbor in the South Bay, the Chula Vista Bayfront project also will establish ecological buffers to protect wildlife habitat, species and other coastal resources.
Residents are invited to complete an online survey (link) to tell the City of Chula Vista and Port of San Diego what they would like to see in the two parks to be developed at the Bayfront. The future Harbor Park will provide signature amenities, recreational opportunities and space for civic and community activities in its much larger available acreage. The future Sweetwater Park will connect visitors with the bayfront’s ecology and provide environmental educational opportunities and family/child-oriented recreational exploration.
Visit the website, www.portofsandiego.org/chulavistabayfront for more information and to access the online survey for each park. Surveys must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Friday, October 26. Information gathered from the survey results will be used by the park designers to create draft park concepts. The public will be invited to comment on the park design concepts in early 2019.
