Port Commissioners to Review Shelter Island Boatyard Project
Port of San Diego press release
Following a 30-day public review period, the Port of San Diego is releasing an environmental document related to the Shelter Island Boatyard Crane Replacement and Pier Addition Project.

The Final Negative Declaration for the boatyard improvement project will be presented to the Board of Port Commissioners for adoption at the Tuesday, December 10, 2013 monthly board meeting. The Board will also consider issuance of a non-appealable Coastal Development Permit at the meeting.
•icon Final Negative Declaration: Shelter Island Boatyard Crane Replacement and Pier Addition Project (25.28 MB)

The project will replace two existing mobile boat gantry cranes with two new gantry cranes with increased lift capacities, and add a new pier system to support the new larger crane. The Project also involves removal of existing floating docks, maintenance and replacement of existing concrete pad areas, and bulkhead repair work.

As part of its role of overseeing public lands, the Port is often the lead agency in land use development projects. The Port prepared the Negative Declaration – which analyzes environmental impacts for the boatyard project – per the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).
