Help Us Create San Francisco's Vision for Sea Level Rise Adaptation

The Port of San Francisco, in partnership with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and San Francisco city agencies, has developed seven Draft Waterfront Adaptation Strategies based on over five years of public engagement. 

Adaptation Strategies are different ways for the City to create a resilient, sustainable, and equitable waterfront for the next 100 years. From these seven strategies, we will identify a preferred approach to reduce flood risks from sea level rise and extreme storms and provide an opportunity to invest in and bring public benefits to San Francisco's waterfront.

There is no single approach to adaptation that will meet the needs of San Francisco along the entire waterfront. The different risks, topography, and historic development of the waterfront means that we will need to use a combination approaches. The intent is not to choose one of the Draft Waterfront Adaptation Strategies but to use the best ideas from all of them to create a Waterfront Adaptation Plan. Your input will help create a vision for how San Francisco adapts to sea level rise.  

Join Port and City staff this fall for a variety of online and in-person community events to learn more and share your feedback. View the schedule below and sign up using the Eventbrite links.

Online Meeting Series

Join Port and City staff for an online presentation and share your feedback. Presentations will focus on a particular waterfront geography - Islais Creek / Bayview, Mission Creek / Mission Bay, Embarcadero, or Citywide - for a closer look at each Adaptation Strategy and how they work in different ways to create a resilient, sustainable, and equitable waterfront for the next 100 years. The same presentation and questions will be shared at each geography-focused meeting.
