In front of a packed conference room today, former state Sen. Steve Peace and county Supervisor Ron Roberts laid out an ambitious vision for San Diego Bay waterfront that would establish sweeping parklands, consolidate the port’s cargo operations and rearrange the terminals at Lindbergh Field.

“We came to you today with a plan, a vision, to stimulate a dialogue,” said Peace, who chairs the California Independent Voter Project, the event’s sponsor. “There is no doubt we can do better than the course we are headed down today.”

The plan would also include scaling back Doug Manchester’s redevelopment of the Navy Broadway Complex, creating a boat channel to connect the bay with the airport terminals, and moving the cruise ship terminal closer to the convention center.

Peace, who is an advisor to Padres owner and developer John Moores, and Roberts fielded questions after presenting an eight-minute PowerPoint presentation.
