Port Master Plan
The Port of Los Angeles’ planning efforts center around a long-range Port Master Plan, which guides the future development of the Port consistent with the provisions of the California Coastal Act. The Port’s economic development initiatives, strategies, and programs aim to be consistent with the City of Los Angeles’ overall program for creating employment opportunities within the international trade and goods movement sectors of the economy, both City-wide and in the local harbor community. The objective of the Port Master Plan is to establish policies and guidelines to direct the future development of the Port of Los Angeles. The Plan is designed to better promote and safely accommodate foreign and domestic waterborne commerce, navigation and fisheries in the national, state and local public interest. The Plan also provides for additional public recreation facilities within the Port of Los Angeles consistent with sound and compatible port planning.
