Welcome to the Port of LA's Waterfront Update
This electronic newsletter is the third in a series of newsletters designed to keep you up to date on local waterfront projects and the many benefits our emerging "L.A. Waterfront" has to offer – now and for the future. Stay tuned, there will be more coming your way soon.

Your Opinion Matters – Please Let It Be Known!
In a special meeting on September 29, Port staff will present its environmental assessment and final recommendations for the San Pedro Waterfront Project to the Los Angeles Harbor Commission. The discussion will provide an overview of the Port's proposed project along with six other project alternatives that were studied as part of the project environmental assessment (including a "no project" alternative). Because this is the largest community waterfront development initiative ever undertaken at the Port, we encourage you, your friends and family to attend this important public meeting and to share your opinion about the San Pedro Waterfront Project with our Harbor Commission.

Date: Tuesday, September 29, 2009

Time: Meeting starts at 5pm. San Pedro Waterfront discussion starts at 6pm.

Location: The Port of LA Boys and Girls Club at Liberty Hill Plaza, 100 W. Fifth Street, San Pedro.
