Those interested in the future of San Francisco’s waterfront are encouraged to apply to be a part of the new Waterfront Plan Working Group that will help update The City’s waterfront plan.

The working group, which is accepting applicants through July 17, will hold public meetings to address updates to the Port of San Francisco’s Waterfront Land Use Plan. Port officials said the plan has guided developments along the waterfront for more than 17 years.

Aging historic piers, rising tides and need for seismic repair of The City’s seawall are triggering the need for more work to enhance the waterfront for both maritime as well as public uses.

“Our citizens are passionate about the use and management of the Port, which extends 7½ miles from Fisherman’s Wharf, along the Embarcadero and Mission Bay, south to India Basin,” Byron Rhett, director of planning and development for the Port, said in a statement.

The working group will include staff members from the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission, California State Lands Commission and liaisons from the Port’s existing advisory groups.

Stakeholders with special knowledge or expertise are also being sought for advisory teams, which will serve as a resource for the working group to provide technical details and knowledge on specified topics, including waterfront resilience, recreation and open space, historic preservation, urban design and Port financial needs.

The public process for updating the waterfront plan will begin in late September and is expected to take 18-24 months. Those interested in applying for an advisory team or the working group may do so online at the Port’s website: sfport.com.
