David Beaupre is the Port of San Francisco’s new deputy director for planning and environment.

In his new role, Beaupre is tasked with offering strategic oversight of the port’s Planning and Environment Division, which works to ensure that the use and development of port property is aligned with the POSF’s long-term vision and regulatory requirements.

The division also executes port urban design and historic preservation reviews and pushes sustainability and climate change actions.

Beaupre started at the port in 2001 as a senior waterfront planner. Before his current role, he was senior development project manager and oversaw major waterfront development projects.

Port Executive Director Elaine Forbes said that Beaupre’s 20 years of service to the port would be invaluable as the port moves into a new era along the waterfront.

“Going forward we will need dynamic, talented leaders who are forward thinking and well versed in how to get things done amidst changing regulatory and environmental priorities as we work to ensure today’s waterfront will be enjoyed for decades to come,” she said.
