The port wants to develop the bayfront to, supposedly, fulfill their mission statement of providing access to and use of the bay. SANDAG wants Coronado to provide 1001 new affordable housing units. 

What better way to provide access for those who are most in need of access to the waterways than to have the port build hundreds of low cost housing units with beaches, parks and playgrounds. The wealthy people who would use the proposed bayfront hotels do not need help accessing the bay.

So what is the Port’s mission? Do they simply want to make more money or do they want to increase use of the bay for those who need it most? This would provide a blueprint for other cities. Treat the needy with dignity.
