Sea levels are anticipated to rise 6-10 feet by 2100. These changes will continue to increase flood risk and impact. The Port is partnering with agencies at the federal, state, and local levels to study risks and needed improvements. Proactive planning will help ensure the safety of citizens and prevent serious damage to vulnerable waterfront communities and city infrastructure over the long term.
ISLAIS CREEK-BAYVIEW COMMUNITY WATERFRONT RESILIENCE MEETING
The Southeastern stretch of San Francisco’s waterfront, including the Islais Creek and Bayview communities, will experience more frequent and severe flooding in the future. The Port of San Francisco, the Planning Department, and San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), in partnership with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and other agencies, is studying flood risk along the waterfront as one of several coordinated resilience projects.
Public input is needed to ensure that community assets are properly identified and protected, and that investments in protecting the waterfront reflect the priorities of the community, and a shared vision for the future.
This will be the second in a series of Southeast waterfront community meetings designed to encourage public discussion and engagement on questions such as:
How can the City facilitate deeper neighborhood and community resilience related to climate hazards and risks?
Which community assets, including transportation infrastructure, public safety resources, utilities, open spaces, and landmarks are most vulnerable to flooding along Islais Creek, and which are the top priorities for investment?
How should competing priorities be balanced, and what are the trade-offs to consider?
What are the best strategies for protecting community assets and infrastructure from flood risk?
How can solutions be implemented in a way that is consistent with the community’s vision?
The meeting is free and open to the public, and will be hosted by representatives from the Port of San Francisco, the Planning Department, and SFMTA.
Refreshments will be provided.
