Read and Give Feedback on the Draft Waterfront Plan

The Draft Waterfront Plan is the result of a 3-year public planning process by the Waterfront Plan Working Group. The Draft Plan sets nine goals which establish a framework for the Plan’s many policies. The Draft Plan also identifies five geographic subareas and the objectives for improving the waterfront in each of those areas. Watch video of an informational presentation about the Draft Plan at the May 14 Port Commission meeting (clip 12).

How We Got Here

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. The Port Commission and staff are so impressed and thankful to the Working Group and all the citizens who supported this public process. This work also has been coordinated with the Port’s work on the Embarcadero Seawall Program and sea level rise planning for the waterfront.
