The City of Pittsburg was granted sovereign tide and submerged lands in trust in 1937. In 2006, the original grant and its amendments were repealed and replaced with a new granting statute that allowed the land to be used for public trust purposes and in conformance with a land use plan. In 2011, the 2006 grant was repealed and a new grant was enacted that expands the grant to include lands that annexed to the City in 2009. The trust lands must be used for public trust purposes and, on or after January 1, 2017, be in conformance with a land use plan approved by the Commission.
