Design options for Ocean Beach Pier replacement to be presented at public meeting Sept. 9
The city of San Diego says three initial design alternatives for a planned replacement of the Ocean Beach Pier will be presented during a public workshop Saturday, Sept. 9.
The concepts are based partially on input gathered at two community workshops earlier this year.
The Sept. 9 gathering is scheduled for 2 to 5 p.m. at the Liberty Station Conference Center, 2600 Laning Road, Point Loma.

“You all will hear the results — everything we gathered from the feedback meetings — and see the results hopefully in the three alternatives that are presented,” said Ocean Beach Town Council President Corey Bruins, a member of a task force working on plans to develop a replacement for the pier. “Then we will be getting feedback on which alternatives do you like best, which elements of which options do you like best. All that’s going to happen by the end of the year.”
An engineering study completed in 2019 determined that the pier was deteriorating and had “reached the end of its service life.” It gave the city three options: repair the pier, rehabilitate it or replace it.
“When the city ... decides to spend some money on the pier repairing it, we always know that it’s a short-term repair,” Bruins said. “That is why there is a long-term plan to set a redevelopment of the pier.”
