Washington, D.C. – Port of San Diego Commissioner Ann Moore has been selected by the American Planning Association (APA) to receive the 2016 National Planning Excellence Award for a Planning Advocate.

The award was officially accepted by the Board of Port Commissioners at its March 8, 2016 regular meeting.
San Diego boaters are invited to the Port of San Diego’s Clean and Green Boating Expo, a free event for boaters to learn how they can reduce their environmental impact when they use and care for their boat.
