Three Partners,
One Comprehensive Plan

The 556-acre CVBMP was jointly developed by the Port of San Diego, the City of Chula Vista, and Pacifica Companies
These three organizations each own or have jurisdiction over sections of the 556-acre Chula Vista Bayfront Master Plan (CVBMP) site. This development effort was also shaped by input from a Citizens Advisory Committee and feedback gathered from more than 100 public meetings. It is supported by numerous local and regional organizations and individuals.

Port of San Diego, City of Chula Vista

In May 2010, the Board of Port Commissioners, the Chula Vista City Council and the Chula Vista Redevelopment Corporation and Planning Commission held a joint hearing, during which the CVBMP Final Environmental Impact Report was certified and amendments to the Port Master Plan and the City’s Local Coastal Program were adopted.

An agreement, also established in May 2010 among the Bayfront Coalition, Port of San Diego, and the City of Chula Vista ensures that the CVBMP and its components are implemented in a manner that provides community benefits including, but not limited to the preservation and protection of natural resources and the environment, job quality and housing. A similar agreement was reached between the Coalition and Pacifica Companies.

Pacifica Companies

In December 2010, the California State Lands Commission approved a Land Exchange Agreement between the Port and Pacifica Companies. This agreement moved development away from sensitive habitat and resulted in a net gain of 62 acres of open space within the project area.

Including the land provided by this agreement, more than 40 percent of the project area (234 acres) will be dedicated to parks, open space and habitat restoration/preservation; with 130 new acres identified for parks and open space that provide public access and use.
