The Board of Port Commissioners has approved a historic agreement that will help Chula Vista's Bayfront remain a thriving ecosystem, as it continues to develop.
A wildlife advisory group has been established to work with developers, making sure that as recreation and economic opportunities come to the waterfront, the birds, fish, plants and animals that live there are protected.
The land up for development is property which sits between Interstate 5 and the San Diego Bay.
The plan is expected to go to Chula Vista's City Council for approval in June.
This is not the first time a development plan has been in the works. In fact, there’s been a long history of bayfront plans -- none which have come to fruition.
In 2007, a billion-dollar development plan fell through because a deal could not be reached with the labor union.
