SAN FRANCISCO—The Port of San Francisco is opening its doors to the public next month when the agency hosts two public walking tours that will showcase plans to update the city’s Waterfront. The tours will include an open house workshop in which visitors can get a sense of the changes to come. The Waterfront Plan includes 161 recommendations from the public, who shared their views on what they would like to see updated. Of the numerable recommendations, several will be snapshotted and shared during the tours next month.

The first “walkshop” is set to take place on Wednesday, April 11 from 5-7 p.m. in the South Beach District. The tour will start at the Pier 40 South Beach Harbormaster community room. The second tour will take place on Saturday, April 14 from 6-8 p.m. and will take visitors along the northeast waterfront beginning with Pier 1.

Hoodline San Francisco reported that there will be an additional and final open house on Tuesday, April 17 from 6-8 p.m. that will meet on the second floor of the Ferry Building. The Waterfront Plan proposes both land and urban design policies that will cover 7.5 miles of piers, shoreline, and adjacent lands from Fisherman’s Wharf to the India Basin.

Advice and recommendations gleaned from the public events will guide Port efforts to draft amendments and update the Waterfront Plan. For more information about the SF Port plan visit the Barbary Coast Neighborhood Association (
