SeaWorld San Diego representatives are planning to meet again with residents to present further details of the park’s expansion plans.
In January, the park held its first series of forums. In April, it announced four specific projects: an education complex, a special events facility, a front entrance enhancement and a new “splashdown” ride.
In these sessions, SeaWorld’s representatives will ask for input on future projects. The meetings will also focus on the recently announced projects’ viewshed issues and the environmental impact review process, dealing with issues such as water quality, traffic and noise.
The changes, which could later be documented in SeaWorld’s section of the Mission Bay Park Master Plan, need the approval of the San Diego City Council.
The San Diego Planning Commission requested that SeaWorld seek input from citizens, and the park announced several ways in which it would abide, including the public forums.
Community forums began June 17 and will continue to June 19, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Rancho Penasquitos Library, and from 7 to 8:30 p.m. June 21 at the Salvation Army Citadel in Clairemont.
