The Port of San Francisco Waterfront Plan sets forth goals and policies to guide the use and improvement of Port piers, land and waterfront resources from Fisherman’s Wharf to India Basin/Bayview. The Waterfront Plan was produced in conformance with Proposition H and was adopted by the Port Commission in 1997, and includes a Waterfront Design & Access Element.
In 2019, following a 3-year public planning process led by the Waterfront Plan Working Group, the Port released a comprehensive update of the Waterfront Plan (2019). This Draft Plan sets nine goals with supporting policies described in the Waterfront Plan Summary below. The Plan includes new resilience and sustainability goals and policies which support the detailed studies and projects being developed in the Port’s Waterfront Resilience Program.
The Port is working with the SF Planning Department and SF Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC) to develop amendments to align the updated Waterfront Plan policies with the San Francisco General Plan, and BCDC’s San Francisco Waterfront Special Area Plan. Prior to any public approval of plan amendments, the Port must complete an Environmental Impact Report as required by the California Environmental Quality Act.
