Infrastructure developments in San Francisco

Written by Elena Collins on 10 December 2012

Director of Planning in San Francisco, John Rahaim, explains the challenges the city faces in terms of infrastructure development 

A city prone to earthquakes and flooding, San Francisco is striving for greater resilience in the face of environmental shocks that it regularly faces. The city is managing well to protect itself against natural hazards and the economy is supporting growing businesses. However San Francisco faces resource challenges to support the scale of desired infrastructure investments. Transportation in places such as South of Market, an area attracting many technology firms, has no plans to improve the infrastructure of the area, which is struggling to keep up with the rest of the city.
