San Francisco “Design Challenge” Kick-Off: Stakeholders Discuss Bay Area Resilience

Rebuild by Design is working with the city of San Francisco and stakeholders in the Bay Area to create a unique process for the region that will address ways to adapt to Sea Level, Earthquakes, and other climate uncertainties. The “Bay Area Design Challenge” will be modeled after the successful Rebuild By Design process in the Hurricane Sandy Region.

This month, representatives from Rebuild by Design were joined by over a dozen governmental and non-governmental agencies to discuss how to best adapt the Rebuild by Design process to the region. Attendees included the City of San Francisco, Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC),  the California Costal Conservancy, the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG), San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC), SPUR, the Climate Readiness Institute, as well as the Chief Resilience Officers’ from Oakland and Berkeley.
