Garry Bonelli-Chairman, Board of Port Commissioners
December 12, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Garry Bonelli was sworn in on January 16, 2019, as the new board chairman of the Board of Port Commissioners for the San Diego Unified Port District.
Garry’s mantra for the Port of San Diego is clearly defined: “In order to have a world-class port we must: think globally, plan regionally, and act locally, focusing on what’s best for the bay overall.”
His goals include completing the Port Master Plan, so that it can go before the State Coastal Commission, and working hand-in-hand with Chula Vista on that city’s Bayfront Park Project, which covers 535 acres, and includes a Gaylord Hotel and Convention Center, restaurants, marinas, retail space, an RV park, and more. He notes that fully half of the acreage will be dedicated to open space. He also plans to continue to be a champion for clean bay water.
Renaissance on the Bay
With his presentation, Garry will take us on a virtual tour around San Diego Bay and all of the Port of San Diego projects going on within the Port’s five member cities of Chula Vista, Coronado, Imperial Beach, National City and San Diego. We will hear about the progress being made on the 535-acre Chula Vista Bayfront project, the Brigantine’s Portside Pier project on the North Embarcadero, Seaport San Diego and others.
