Good Government Awards 2019: Diane Oshima Helps Transform San Francisco's Waterfront
March 11, 2019

The 2019 Good Government Awards, held on March 6, recognized outstanding job performance of those serving the City and County of San Francisco.


For 20 years, the Waterfront Plan guided the transformation of the city’s waterfront, leading to a renaissance of historic rehabilitation and public realm benefits.

Diane Oshima, who has worked for the Port since 1991, set the tone for this work through her exhaustive collaboration with the for public and other agencies. By 2015, however, the Port was embroiled in controversy, facing public doubt and distrust.

In response, Diane and her team embarked on the Waterfront Plan Review, engaging a broad and diverse public to rebuild trust, seek input and move the plan forward. Diane is hailed as the principal author of the cooperation and public involvement that are necessary for such a world-class public waterfront.
