The Port of San Diego has scheduled two public workshops to gather input on future capital improvements, including parks, public amenities and maritime operations.

A port statement said an April 4 meeting will take comments from local residents and businesses on the current capital improvement program, covering fiscal years 2009-2013. The meeting is set for the port’s Administration Building, 3165 Pacific Highway in San Diego, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

A second workshop is planned for June 7 at the same location, with a time to be determined, covering the new five-year capital improvement program, spanning fiscal years 2014-2018.

The port in December announced it was seeking public input on projects to be included in the long-term capital program. It received 39 suggested projects from port member cities as of the Feb. 28 submission deadline, 16 from the public and 14 from port staff.

Port officials are reviewing the proposed projects and will have a report on them before the June 7 workshop, the statement said.
