The City’s Mayor made the announcement, in agreement with the President of the Port. The initial phase of the masterplan concerns the Muelle de Levante, the “Club de Mar” and a park. There are some port activities remaining in the area. The plan will require the City to continue working with the Port on the future uses for the land.
