Port to Fund $1.3 M Sampson Way Realignment

The Los Angeles Board of Harbor Commissioners voted last week to fund the $1.3 million realignment of Samspon Way, a critical part of the Ports O’ Call Village redevelopment plans. The decision comes weeks after negotiations between the port and developer the L.A. Waterfront Alliance were extended another time, casting doubt that the long-awaited project would see a lease agreement. The move is seen as a major step forward in negotiations.

At its monthly board meeting last week, leaders of the Historic Downtown Waterfront Business Improvement District (or PBID) discussed proposing an expansion of San Pedro’s replica Red Car line into downtown. The idea has been explored by the Port of Los Angeles in years past, but there was not enough funding to move forward with the project. PBID, which argues the expansion will ensure downtown San Pedro is connected to waterfront attractions, will present plans for a formal proposal at its next meeting on July 2.
