An exhibit celebrating the Port of San Diego's role in maritime history is now open along the San Diego waterfront. The educational display, titled "A World Connected by Water," will be housed aboard two decks of the Maritime Museum of San Diego's Star of India vessel.
With curated photographs, narratives, and touchscreen multi-media displays, the exhibit takes visitors from the mid-to-late-1800s to the present. Its goal is to educate residents, visitors and school children on our Port's maritime industry and reflects San Diego Bay as a vital link in the world supply chain.
Community groups, residents and businesses are encouraged to attend a public workshop to discuss the San Diego Bay Watershed's water quality issues and potential solutions that will help inform the planning process.
The Port of San Diego is making visual enhancements to a 95-acre parcel of vacant land and wetlands in San Diego's South Bay known as Pond 20.
Located between Palm Avenue and the San Diego National Wildlife Refuge, Pond 20 has been owned by the Port District since 1998. It lies within the city limits of San Diego and is located at the gateway of Imperial Beach. In June 2012, the Board of Port Commissioners approved $300,000 for a replacement fence along Palm Avenue. Six concept renderings are now available, consisting of three variations of the "Wave Fence" design as well as the "Wire Mesh" design.
More than 100 people gathered Wednesday, November 13, 2013, on the Chula Vista Bayfront for an event to kick off the long-awaited H Street Extension Project, which will connect the waterfront to the main streets in western Chula Vista.

H Street will be extended westerly from Bay Boulevard, where it currently dead-ends, to Marina Parkway.
