*Big News on Chula Vista Bayfront Redevelopment*
News from the Dockmaster
Welcome Mariners to the August edition of the Chula Vista Newsletter. First off, I would like to say thank you for everyone’s help in relocating their vehicles for the Tree Trimming. We only had to relocate one vehicle this year! You all will notice a much cleaner parking lot now that those trees have been trimmed back. 
Some big news about the Chula Vista Bayfront Redevelopment. They had the official groundbreaking ceremony on Wednesday July 27th. I have included the article from the Port of San Diego about the event and some information on what the project will include. They do have some big plans. If you are interested in seeing some images of what the project may look like when it is finished, check out the Ports website where they update information and progress of the project.
See you on the docks!

Whose Dog is That?
At Chula Vista Marina we are proud to offer our tenants a safe and relaxing environment for themselves, their guests and their pets. We love your 4-legged friends as much as you do, and are happy to be considered a pet-friendly facility. However, we have had several recent incidents with off-leash dogs on the docks.
We encourage our pet-owners to please be mindful of their neighbors and to follow our rules and regulations. Most importantly:
  • All pets must be kept on the vessel or on a leash at all times.
  • Owner shall be responsible to cleaning up after their pets on the docks or Marina property. (For your convenience, there are doggy bags located near Gate #2 and #3 as well as at the pet-stations in the RV Park.)
  • No pet barking that is considered excessive and will disturb neighbors.
  • Animals may never be taken into the restrooms/laundry room/inside areas on the property.
  • Threatening behavior towards people or other pets passing on the docks must be prevented.
The Marina requires that all tenants who bring their pets on the property have a signed “Pet Policy Addendum” on file in the office. This ensures that all our pet-owners know and agree to the rules regarding animals on Marina property. 
Do you need to sign a pet policy? Please come by the office, and we will be happy to print one out for you. We also keep a photo of your pet in your file with their name and description, so that if they do become loose on the docks, we can contact the owner.
Thank you for your help in making our facility safe and friendly for people and animals alike.
Update from the Port Regarding the Chula Vista Bayfront Redevelopment
Officials from the Port of San Diego and the City of Chula Vista gathered for a historic event on Wednesday, July 27, 2022, to ceremonially break ground on the Gaylord Pacific Resort and Convention Center – the catalyst project for the Chula Vista Bayfront. They were joined by representatives of Gaylord Hotels and the developer, RIDA Chula Vista, LLC, and hundreds of community supporters of the project.
Gaylord Hotels is the large convention hotel brand of Marriott International. When constructed, this will be Gaylord Hotels’ first West Coast location. With its nationally recognized brand, the Gaylord Pacific Resort and Convention Center is expected to spur other development on the 535-acre Chula Vista Bayfront. Heavy equipment is positioned on site for the groundbreaking of the 1,600-room hotel and convention center.
Wednesday’s event marked the start of a bayfront development phase totaling $1.35 billion of investment. Decades in the making, the use of a public-private partnership was jointly conceived by the Port and the City of Chula Vista and executed through the participation of RIDA Chula Vista’s partners, RIDA Development Corp & Ares Management. The Port and the City successfully secured $275 million in public bond funding to support the public investment in the project and closed escrow in May. The first phase will include the resort hotel and convention center along with a brand-new public park, new roads, a parking structure, and supporting public infrastructure.
“The Chula Vista Bayfront in the defining project of a generation for the South Bay. We are finally realizing the fulfillment of all the tireless effort that hundreds if not thousands of people have invested in this project over the past few decades,” said Chula Vista Mayor Mary Casillas Salas. “I am beyond proud and honored to be here to celebrate the start of construction on the Gaylord Pacific Resort and Convention Center.”
