The Brisbane Baylands encompasses approximately 660 acres, generally bordered on the west by Bayshore Boulevard, north by the City and County of San Francisco, east by the U.S. Hwy 101 causeway, and south by Brisbane Lagoon. It is comprised of a former municipal landfill and former rail yard, and presents both exciting opportunities and formidable challenges for the City. The site's history left a legacy of contamination requiring millions of dollars and years of remediation, which is still ongoing. Yet the remediated site holds the promise of enhanced environmental quality, opportunities for use and enjoyment by Brisbane residents via trails and enhanced open spaces, and new sustainable development contributing to the City's economic health, social diversity, and environment.
The City is committed to a planning process which engages the community and maximizes opportunities for open dialogue and input along with public review and comment.
