Port San Luis Harbor District and the State of California Coastal Conservancy are Looking to Redevelop 32-Acre Property along the Central Coast


In news of a major California coastal development opportunity, Port San Luis Harbor District is seeking qualified developers to revitalize a high-profile oceanfront property in a popular travel destination along the state’s stunning Central Coast. The District is accepting proposals to develop Harbor Terrace, a 32-acre RV Resort and Campground.

Located in Avila Beach, the Harbor Terrace property offers sweeping panoramic views of San Luis Obispo Bay and California’s picturesque coastline. Mild temperatures, sunny beaches, trails and an abundance of recreational activities bring hundreds of thousands of annual visitors to the region, which has been regularly recognized as a top-10 destination by travel writers.

The proposed development may include up to 126 RV and cabin sites, 56 campsites, and 16k sf of hospitality and retail uses. The selected developer will leave a positive, lasting legacy on California’s Central Coast by contributing to preserving nature and strengthening the local economy. The developer will also have the opportunity to showcase its expertise in environmentally responsible design practices.

The Port San Luis Harbor District and the State of California Coastal Conservancy (SCC) have formed a “first of its kind” innovative partnership to re-develop this special property. “The SCC has provided the funding to prepare final design, permit and environmental review documents and is overseeing the entitlement process,” said Steve McGrath, Harbor Manager for the Harbor District. “That means entitlements will be in place at no cost or delay to the developer, which is highly unusual, especially for a coastal development.”

The Harbor District anticipates the release of a draft environmental impact report in early September and a coastal development permit in spring 2015. McGrath expects the project to take approximately 18 months from final lease execution to opening.

The Harbor District released the request for proposal (RFP) on July 7. The closing date for all proposals is October 9, 2014.

Founded in 1955, the Port San Luis Harbor District is an independent special district charged with promoting and preserving many areas of San Luis Obispo Bay, including commercial and recreational fishing, the beaches of Avila and Port San Luis, the piers and the historic Point San Luis Lighthouse. The District is governed by five elected Harbor Commissioners who represent over 70,000 registered San Luis Obispo County voters. The District is funded by a combination of property taxes and income generated from the use of the District’s facilities.
