The Working Waterfront

The working waterfront is a thriving hub of industry and commerce along San Diego Bay. Maritime industrial businesses build and repair ships, use San Diego Bay to keep goods moving in and out of the region and support the Navy’s San Diego presence.

 

The working waterfront provides jobs with family-supporting salaries and health insurance, along with job training programs for the local community. Working waterfront businesses help protect the environment with programs to prevent pollution and preserve our natural resources.

 

Although the working waterfront’s history is strong, its future may be in jeopardy. Changing land uses and development along San Diego Bay could force these valuable businesses out of the region, which would have a devastating effect on the local economy, jobs, national security and our quality of life.

Working waterfront businesses are good neighbors to nearby communities. The businesses are involved in community outreach programs and contribute resources to organizations such as Barrio Station, a local agency that supports high-risk youth. Businesses also partner with the local schools by promoting science education, donating equipment, participating in career day events and hosting plant tours.
