Default Plant recommendations for tidal influx area (SF Bay)?

I'm putting together a landscape design for a site in San Josenear where a creek enters the bay zoning-wise, it's considered a'tidal influx' area rather than 'riparian'. The site sits atop abank and has apparently been plowed for years--there are no existingplants on the site, while the bank is home to willows and cattails.It's near the local landfill and not far from a group of sludgeponds oh joy.

Because the site is near a creek, I need to be especially carefulin choosing well-behaved plants that fit the site and won't causetrouble later. I'd love to use natives, but I am open to non-invasivenon-natives possibly natives to other Mediterranean climate areas.Due to the neighbors ! I'd love to find some fragrant plants to helpcounteract the existing occasional odors. As this will be a commercialsite--one part will be an office, I believe, and retail buildings willbe built close by--I'd like to provide an outdoor oasis for peopleworking there--a picnic area, perhaps.

Does anyone have any suggestions for trees, shrubs and/or perennialsto plant in this site?

Thanks for any help you can offer.Cheryl</p>
