San Diegans are invited to attend a public meeting regarding a proposed increase to parking rates along the waterfront.
The Port of San Diego is considering increasing rates for public parking along the waterfront that could result in millions of dollars in increased revenue over five years.
Port commissioners want to hear reaction to the proposal to increase meter rates along Shelter Island from $1 an hour to $1.25 an hour and to increase parking enforcement hours to 7 days a week from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Also proposed are additional pay stations at Spanish Landing with rates from $1 to $2.50 an hour, enforced seven days a week from 6 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.
They will also propose adding 54 new smart meters along the North Embarcadero Crescent which will also be enforced seven days a week at a similar rate from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
The meeting will be held from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. at the Port Administration Building Training Room, 3165 Pacific Highway, San Diego, 92101.
