What's A Port Worth Anyway?

the port, as a public entity, should seek maximum benefits, both economic and civic, for the the citizens of san diego who are the true owners of the port tidelands. a rigorous analysis of the the tenth ave marine terminal (tamt) finances and civic benefits would certainly show that the current uses and operations of the tamt are performing way below what should be expected.

as such, the port is not acting in the best interests of its constituents. other uses should be considered including a relocated cruise ship terminal along with public access to the waterfront in this prime location. the tamt situation warrants a comprehensive and open discussion of what would be the best combination of uses for all the stakeholders. blind knee jerk reactions to claim that the tamt should continue solely as an underutilized cargo terminal or for a sports complex are short sighted. the citizenry deserve much more.

Port Authority: Battle At The Waterfront

Question to Poll:

Why not pose the question as "Do you support public, waterfront related development at the site of the Tenth Ave. Marine Terminal and move shipping activities to the bigger National City Marine Terminal"?

The current question drags the unnecessary and project specific baggage of football and sports into the equation and will, of necessity, create non-responsive answers and bias the response into favoring leaving the cargo terminal in place.
