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.

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 Waterfront Plan Environmental Impact Report, as required by the California Environmental Quality Act, has been prepared and must be completed before the Port Commission can approve the Waterfront Plan. The Port also is working with the SF Planning Department and SF Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC) to align the updated Waterfront Plan policies with the San Francisco General Plan, and BCDC’s San Francisco Waterfront Special Area Plan.
