Envisioning the Civic Heart of San Francisco

The Civic Center Public Realm Plan is a unified, community-built vision for medium and long-term improvements to Civic Center’s plazas, streets, and other public spaces. The plan is an interagency effort managed by the Planning Department in partnership with multiple city agencies including San Francisco Public Works, San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, San Francisco Recreation & Parks, San Francisco Real Estate Division, San Francisco Public Utilities Commission, San Francisco Arts Commission, and the Office of Economic and Workforce Development. The Public Realm Plan is part of the City’s larger Civic Center Initiative, an effort to make the area’s public spaces more welcoming in the near-term through improved stewardship, new attractions, and free programming.
