Pagt 52-gX&nHnrr Fit, Sept. 19, 1969 Port to Expand Far East Terminal at India Basin The Port of San Francisco went ahead today with plans to construct a 50 acre $19 million terminal for Pacific Far East Line at India Basin. The Bay Conservation and Development Commission issued a permit yesterday for 13'i acres of fill to round out the area for two shipping berths, a large cargo shed and more than 40 acres of container and cargo storage space. The vote was 18-0 with Commissioner Bernice May abstaining. BCDC Executive Director Joseph Bodovitz noted the LASH (lighter aboard ship system) "is an exciting new concept that "will permit shallow water areas around the Bay to be developed into barge terminals without additional dredging." The system is based on a mother ship which docks at its main terminal or anchors in the bay and puts loaded barges over the side to be towed to destinations ashore. PFEL is building six new LASH ships at a cost of $22.5 million each. The commission urged the Port Commission to study means of public access to the huge new terminal. The PFEL terminal is the forerunner of others that eventually will total 230 acres of container or LASH type operations on the San Francisco waterfront. Port officials say they will need approval of an addition al 45 acres of fill to complete the planned terminals.
