Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide the community with a quality Waterfront for recreation and commercial use, along with mooring and landside services for boating. Approximately 252 acres of tidelands and submerged lands is managed by the Department. The area encompasses the Harbor and Stearns Wharf. These lands belong to the State and are held in trust by the City. Different from most City departments, Waterfront is an Enterprise Fund and operates from revenues generated from the lands we manage. Tenant rents, boat fees, parking fees, and other sources are put back into improvements and services, such as, preventative maintenance, capital improvements, parking services, staffing, public safety, slip and visitor boat services, special events, public education and more.
