This forum will be rescheduled for January 2015. Please check back shortly for a new date. We apologize for any inconvenience.

 

On the eastern waterfront of San Francisco, Mission Creek is one of the city’s lowest-lying areas and is vulnerable to flooding from both sea level rise and stormwater runoff. SPUR has been a leader in the Mission Creek Project, a public-private partnership to understand vulnerability and propose adaptation strategies for the creek. Join us for a look at what we can do to build resilience on the waterfront.
