Thank you to San Diego Port Board and staff for the opportunity for PMPU input and listening to the community of Coronado and our City Council. No new hotel rooms for Coronado Tidelands in the Bayfront and Silver Strand districts and recognition of our legal 40’ height limit is most important to our community.
Please note: Any planned improvements/changes that are contemplated in the North Coronado and South Coronado sub districts are still governed by the TOZ (Tidelands Overlay Zone) and the MOU between the Port and the City - which include specific development criteria of the total ratio for development- that shall not be less than 65% contiguous public parkland and open space nor more than 35% commercial/recreation, outlines the standards and definitions for computing open space and commercial scope of development, parking, landscaping, and view corridors and shoreline access and cannot be repealed without a majority vote of registered Coronado voters. Our community seeks balance and does not want to be overrun by more cars and traffic. The location of any parking structure that is mentioned needs a lot of attention. If you wish to place this type of structure on the Coronado Tidelands governed by the TOZ - then you must be prepared to remove other buildings as the current structures were planned within the developmental density and land coverage requirements of the TOZ - a legal Coronado ordinance understood by the California Coastal Commission.
The TOZ is fundamental to planning the Tidelands. Thank you.
