CHULA VISTA, Calif. (KGTV) — South Bay leaders are seeking the public's input on the future of Chula Vista's bayfront.

City leaders and the Port of San Diego are taking feedback via an online survey regarding what features residents want to see included in the future Harbor and Sweetwater parks.

The surveys include options such as beach access, bike paths, recreation, art installations, gardens, cafes or restaurants, and other recreational and special amenities.


Residents are also asked what type of special events they'd like to see, such as festivals, outdoor movies and concerts, or even virtual reality events.

Those interested in lending their input on the future of the new bayfront parks can submit their answers on the Port's website.

Chula Vista's bayfront master plan aims to transform the city's industrial coastline into a residential and recreational district. The plan envisions 70 acres of parkland, hotels, restaurants and retail space, and mixed-use offices.

Chula Vista's current RV Park will also move about a mile away to make room for construction, before possibly being replaced with a new RV park.

The anchor for the bayfront will be a $1.1 billion resort hotel and convention center.
