The Plan is an interagency effort managed by San Francisco Planning and is part of the City’s ongoing efforts to improve the area as both a neighborhood gathering space and common area for everyone who lives in, works in and visits San Francisco.
The following components will make up the Civic Center Public Realm Plan:
Public Life Study
Analyses of how people currently use Civic Center’s public realm throughout the day. Findings will serve as the basis for developing and testing preliminary ideas for improvements through temporary, physical installations.
Streetscape Design Standards
Guidelines for contextually-appropriate locations and design palettes for streetscape amenities such as lighting, trees, and paving.
Transportation Infrastructure Plan
Upgrades to the transportation infrastructure throughout the plan area including parking, streetscape paving, street design, transit improvements, and pedestrian and bicycle facilities.
Focus Area Designs
Conceptual designs for key public spaces and streets within the area.
Methods for activating and stewarding public spaces, focused on long-term changes that will increase public use and enjoyment of Civic Center (e.g. reuse of Brooks Hall).
Funding and phasing strategy for implementation of proposed improvements.
