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. To help in this dialogue, the City has established and maintains this website. You may direct general comments or questions regarding the Baylands to firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, for general information on past and future activities see the Sequence of Events.
Please visit this webpage for updates. Also, to be included in future email updates, please submit your email address on the email submission page.

In June 2013, the City held a series of presentations summarizing the contents of the Draft EIR. Please view the presentations and the handouts at: http://www.ci.brisbane.ca.us/deir-meetings
In 2012/13, the City provided a series of educational sessions for the community regarding the CEQA process, how to go about reviewing an EIR and providing effective, meaningful comments. These sessions are available for review at the EIR Training webpage. Anyone interested in commenting on the draft EIR is encouraged to also review these sessions.
Brisbane Baylands Specific Plan In February 2011, Universal Paragon Corporation (UPC) released their updated draft Baylands Specific Plan. In addition to the preceding link, paper copies of the document are also available for review at the Community Development Department at City Hall and at the City Library. CDs of the document can also be obtained at the Community Development Department. The February 2011 Baylands Specific Plan superceded the 2006 Baylands Specific Plan, which only showed what was then referred to as Phase 1 of the proposed development, on the eastern side of the Baylands.
Environmental Impact Report Process This page includes information and links to EIR-related activities prior to publication of the draft EIR.
Public Space Master Plan In developing a community-based alternative for the Baylands, it became clear that the Public Space component would be vital to the success of the plan. In 2009, a Public Space Master Plan was developed and integrated into the Community Alternative.
