SITELAB urban studio partnered with landscape architects, architects, scientists, artists, academics, economists, community organizers, ecologists, and engineers to form team “Common Ground”, led by Tom Leader Studio. This team is one of the ten carefully-chosen design teams selected by Resilient by Design Bay Area Challenge to explore innovative solutions to sea level rise and resilience issues. Our team’s focus is on the San Pablo Baylands, a complex landscape of marshes that are bounded by Sears Point and Tolay/Sonoma Creek to the West, Napa River and the northern tip of Mare Island to the East, Route 12 to the North, and State Route 37 to the South. Various efforts are currently underway in this region, including overall marshland restoration and planning efforts to rebuild the continually flooded State Route 37, which is predicted to be inundated by 2100.
While adaptation for sea-level rise is the primary driver for transformation of the area, the team believes there are additional needs for addressing regional connectivity through multi-modal transportation linkages between Napa, Sonoma and Solano Counties; strengthening the identity and legibility of the Baylands as an ecological resource for the region; and prioritizing public investment to address these critical issues in a holistic way.

The team’s vision for the Baylands stems from established goals of stakeholders from Solano, Sonoma, and Napa counties, while re-envisioning multimodal connectivity to the Baylands to create a resilient network throughout the North Bay region. Concurrent to conducting exploration of sediment dynamics for marshland restoration, the team is reaching out to neighbors and visitors to craft a collective vision for the San Pablo Baylands.
