Imperial Beach – City of San Diego border on Palm Avenue
Pond 20, originally one of the salt ponds of the Western Salt Company, is a 95.13-acre parcel of land, with develop-able acreage of 53 acres, located between Palm Avenue and the San Diego National Wildlife Refuge in south San Diego Bay. It is has been owned by the San Diego Unified Port District (Port) since 1998, and lies within the city limits of San Diego and the redevelopment area of Imperial Beach. It is an area that many consider to be the gateway to South County’s beaches. Pond 20 currently is undeveloped, and the Port is working with the cities of San Diego and Imperial Beach to explore opportunities for future uses. A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), has been developed between the Port of San Diego and the cities of San Diego and Imperial Beach, which outlines a process to solicit input and develop project proposals to determine the highest and best use for Pond 20.
