On Jan. 27, 2013, members of the community met with the consultant team and Port staff at Ryan Bros on Main Street to review the final gateway design: Final Gateway Design Powerpoint Presentation .
The project will now go before the Board of Port Commissoners in March 2013 as an informational item and all improvements included in the project are slated to begin by the end of 2013 and completed by the mid to end of 2014.
Community Meeting #3 - Nov. 14, 2012
As part of the 10th Avenue Marine Terminal Port/Caltrans Street Improvements project, a new community sign is being proposed to span Cesar E. Chavez Parkway. At the third meeting, the consultant presented revised gateway designs for the community?s review. The stakeholders that were present at the meeting agreed that the revised gateway structure was satisfactory and should move forward. Additionally more work will be done to incorporate artistic elements into the design.
The Port of San Diego and the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) are in the process of developing a community sign to serve as a gateway to the Barrio Logan neighborhood. The new community sign will span Cesar E. Chavez Parkway between Main Street and Newton Avenue.
The proposed gateway sign is part of the Port Access Project, which will include crosswalk enhancements, lane adjustments, and beautification improvements along Harbor Drive, Cesar E. Chavez Parkway and Crosby Street near the 10th Avenue Marine Terminal.
Ideas from these meetings will be used to create a final draft design that will be presented to the Barrio Logan community. After the final outreach session, the recommended concept will be presented to the Board of Port Commissioners. It is anticipated that construction of the gateway sign will begin summer 2013.
The first community meeting was held on Aug. 30, 2012 where community participants in attendance were asked how the sign should be designed in order to be unique to Barrio Logan.
At the second meeting on October 4, 2012, the consultant presented draft concepts based on input at the first meeting for the design. At that meeting the public provided comments to guide the refined sign design which will be presented in November 2012.
On behalf of the City of San Diego, the San Diego Unified Port District hired a consultant to prepare the Bayshore Bikeway Report. This report will be provided to the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) for further evaluation during the development phase of the Bayshore Bikeway which is slated to begin design in winter 2012.
