The City of Vallejo was granted sovereign tide and submerged lands in trust in 1913 for the establishment, improvement and conduct of a harbor and the construction maintenance and operation of wharves, docks, piers, slips, quays, and other utilities and appliances necessary or convenient for the promotion and accommodation of commerce and navigation. In 2004, the previous grant and amendments were repealed and a new statute was enacted granting tide and submerged lands in trust to the City for public trust purposes and authorizing the implementation of an exchange agreement involving the Mare Island Naval Shipyard.
