The Port of Los Angeles is a department of the City of Los Angeles and is governed by the Los Angeles Board of Harbor Commissioners, a panel appointed by the Mayor of Los Angeles. Although the Port is a City department, it is not supported by City taxes. Operating as a landlord port with more than 200 leaseholders, the Port instead generates its revenues from leasing and shipping service fees. The Port’s jurisdiction is limited to the Harbor District, which includes property in San Pedro, Wilmington, and Terminal Island. All Port operations are managed by the Board of Harbor Commissioners in accordance with the Public Trust Doctrine to promote maritime, commerce, navigation, fisheries, and public access to the waterfront.
