Port of San Francisco’s Waterfront Plan
In 2015, the Port published a Waterfront Plan Review report about the waterfront projects and changes that have taken place since 1997, when the Waterfront Plan was initially adopted. The Port identified new issues that needed address and created the Waterfront Plan Working Group, supported by seven Advisory Teams. Their 3-year planning process delved into land use, transportation, resilience, and several other issues, leading to public recommendations about how the Port waterfront should be improved in the future, which is incorporated in the Draft Waterfront Plan.
