The Board of Port Commissioners has given the go-ahead on the concept design for a make over of the historic Broadway Pier.
During its monthly meeting on April 10, 2012, Commissioners voted 6-0, with Commissioner Lee Burdick absent, to approve a list of pier improvements. They were briefed on the proposed improvements, which include additional lighting, flag poles, benches with planter boxes, table seating at the edge of the pier and bronze markers charting the history of the pier, which was built in 1913.

State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson visited the Chula Vista Nature Center in south San Diego Bay on April 3, 2012. Torlakson, California's highest elected education official, wanted to tour a facility where young students experience science and nature first-hand and up close.
While there, Torlakson got a close look at a Red Tail Hawk, a Golden Eagle and a Sonoran Desert Tortoise, while also learning about the nature center's educational programs.
