The Port Master Plan covers the Port of Long Beach Harbor District. This area consists of nearly 2,700 acres of land and more than 4,500 acres of water. The Port Master Plan divides the Harbor District into 11 planning districts and identifies land and water uses permitted in each one. The purpose of the Port Master Plan is to provide a planning tool to guide future port development and to ensure that projects and developments in the Harbor District are consistent with the requirements of the California Coastal Act.

Port Master Plan Update and Program Environmental Impact Review
The Port of Long Beach is comprehensively updating its Port Master Plan.
The Master Plan covers a Harbor District of nearly 2,700 acres of land and more than 4,500 acres of water. The Master Plan identifies permitted land and water uses.
Port Master Plans are required by the California Coastal Act of 1976. They outline strategic goals, operational initiatives and environmental policies, and evaluate the consistency of future developments and land uses with those goals, initiatives and policies.
The Port Master Plan Update is needed to consider changes in the global shipping industry, technological advances, and important factors such as climate change and energy resources consistent with Green Port Policy objectives. The Update will revise the guidelines for public access to the waterfront by reviewing the vision for development of future recreation areas and facilities.
The Update includes the following main tasks:
- Update the Master Plan and integrate previous amendments
- Integrate other Port of Long Beach initiatives, such as the Green Port Policy, into the Update
- Prepare a Program Environmental Impact Report for the Update in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act
- Gather and integrate public input into the planning and decision-making process
As part of the Update, the Port of Long Beach will provide opportunities for the community to provide feedback. More information on these opportunities will be provided soon.
