From ‘dumping ground’ to vibrant waterfront

Kimberly Brandon was praised during the Board of Supervisors Rules Committee hearing Thursday for her years of service on the Port Commission and her reappointment was then supported. It is expected to be confirmed by the full board.

Brandon, who was chair of the commission when it selected the developer of the Ferry Building, said one of her main focuses is the southern waterfront.

“It just became a passion of mine to bring the resources to the southern part of the city. And with the development of Mission Bay and now with the possible development of Seawall Lot 337, the Giants parking lot, and Pier 70  — the southern waterfront, there is just so much that can be on it. And just to be part of the process and be involved in what the vision could actually be in the future is just wonderful to me,” she said.

“That part of The City, it’s kind of been like a city dumping ground where a lot of environmental injustices have happened. It was abandoned. And so now that we got those resources, we are connecting the southeast sector of The City with the northern section of the waterfront. I just think it’s wonderful.”

Another one of her focuses is to increase maritime activity by working to try and bring more cargo activity to the waterfront.
