Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the State Lands Commission and the City of Los Angeles, acting by and through its Board of Harbor Commissioners, may take all actions which are necessary for mitigation of expansion of the Port of Los Angeles by the enhancement, restoration, and management of Batiquitos Lagoon in the County of San Diego. Nothing in this section exempts the Batiquitos Lagoon Restoration Project from the regulatory requirements or jurisdiction of any public entity.
If any interests in property are acquired as a part of the Batiquitos Lagoon mitigation project, these interests are to be held in trust for the public as sovereign lands by the State Lands Commission.
The Legislature finds that adequate area for appropriate mitigation of impacts on biological resources does not presently exist within Los Angeles Harbor. The City of Los Angeles, acting by and through its Board of Harbor Commissioners, may expend harbor revenue funds to enhance, restore, and manage Batiquitos Lagoon. The Legislature further finds that the enhancement, restoration, and management of Batiquitos Lagoon will provide benefits to the Port of Los Angeles and the community because it will (1) facilitate the development of an outer harbor landfill which is the initial step in relocating hazardous liquid bulk facilities in the port, thereby providing substantial safety benefits to the surrounding community, (2) allow the port, as part of a larger project, to generate substantial additional revenues to carry out the mandate in the state tidelands grants that the port promote commerce, navigation, and fishery; and (3) create future opportunities for recreational development consistent with tideland grants.
The port shall provide a recreational boating sanitation facility, navigational aids in the Cabrillo Channel, and a free boating safety publication. Provision of these facilities shall be considered by the California Coastal Commission in determining whether the conditions of coastal permit 5-85-623 have been met.
