Resilient by Design Selects Islais Creek

Port of San Francisco: Islais Creek, spilling out into the Southern Bay by Pier 80, was nominated by the Port and City of San Francisco and selected by the Resilient By Design Initiative, as one of nine Bay Area sites to be “re-imagined” with help from community members and other stakeholders for a future filled with nature coexisting with jobs and education while also being prepared for sea level rise and seismic disruption.

The Port of San Francisco is one of the stakeholders in this exercise; being led by the Resilient by Design Bay Area Challenge and funded by the Rockefeller Foundation is supported by the Rebuild by Design organization. The design team that was paired with the Islais Creek site is the  BIG+ONE+Sherwood team. This phase of the RBD Challenge began in January 2018 and will wrap up in May of 2018, with opportunities for community and stakeholder participation in April and May. Read more here>>
