The Port of San Diego will host two community workshops as part of its effort to gather input for its Integrated Port Master Plan Update process. The Port of San Diego, the fourth largest port in California, is in the midst of developing a 50-Year Vision Plan as part of the Port Master Plan Update to help guide land and water uses in the San Diego Bay.
To help ease the parking crunch along the North Embarcadero area, the Port of San Diego has opened up its B Street Pier for public parking. The lot will be managed by ABM Parking Services (NYSE:ABM) and has approximately 200 parking stalls. It will also include space for up to 12 large buses or motorhomes.
Because of homeland security rules, parking will only be available on days when there are no cruise ships berthed at the pier. The lot will close the day before a ship call to allow for security operations.
