Case studies

Resilient San Fransisco


The San Francisco Planning Department released its five-year work plan in 2015. The plan put forward strategies for short-term actions and long-term results, honing in on four key challenges and aspirations for San Francisco: remaining an equitable and inclusive city; access and mobility; resiliency and long-term sustainability; and placemaking. The plan approaches these key challenges and aspirations through five strategic place-based initiatives:

  • The Heart of San Francisco—seeking to inspire design for our city’s public realm;
  • A Resilient Waterfront—considering access to and growth along the waterfront, and the threat of sea level rise;
  • Next Generation SF—seeking to shape and connect the growth in Southeast San Francisco;
  • A City of Neighborhoods—looking at the diverse and distinct character of our City’s neighborhoods; and
  • Bridging the Bay—collaborating across the Bay to develop a shared vision.

The five-year work program closely aligns with the goals of this strategy, building a strategic vision for San Francisco’s future, considering the threats we face and the reality of growth as we look to SF@1M. The Office of Resilience and Recovery will support the Planning Department.
