The Port of San Francisco embraces environmental and community stewardship of the San Francisco Waterfront while promoting the infrastructure development necessary to maintain and expand the Port's operations. To meet this commitment, the Port has dedicated a staff of professionals to manage environmental and land use planning activities. All Port projects incorporate broad community outreach to solicit public input on how policies and development should occur along the waterfront. The Port has set up several Waterfront Advisory Committees
as the main conduit for ongoing community dialog.
