Islais Creek Bayview Community Waterfront Resilience
Thursday, March 14, 2019RSVP
The Southeastern stretch of San Francisco’s waterfront, including Islais Creek and Bayview communities, will experience more frequent and severe flooding in the future. The Port of San Francisco, San Francisco Planning, and the 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 participation is necessary to ensure that investments protecting the waterfront reflect the priorities of the community.
This will be the first in a series of Southeast waterfront community meetings designed to encourage public discussion 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? Which are the top priorities for investment?
- How should competing priorities be balanced? What are the tradeoffs?
- What are the best strategies for protecting these assets and infrastructure from flood risk?
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. The meeting will be held at the Bayview Opera House, 4705 3rd Street in Bayview-Hunter's Point, San Francisco. The event is ADA accessible, with access to accessible restrooms.
