The Haight-Ashbury Public Realm Plan will develop a community-supported vision for the neighborhood’s streets, sidewalks, and public places. Based on this vision, the Plan will propose a series of projects and initiatives that can be built over time. New streetscape designs, parking and circulation plan, and a plan for pedestrian amenities like lighting and signage will make the streets more safe, comfortable, and efficient for all users, whether they walk, bicycle, use transit, or drive, and will promote the streets as a place for vibrant street life and activity.
From SF Planning Department:
At our February public workshop, there was a lot of excitement about the possibilities for Haight Street between Central and Stanyan. Since then, we’re moving forward to refine public realm ideas in coordination with the SFMTA’s proposed transit improvements along the Haight Street corridor. In the next few months, we will be making decisions about what sort of amenities and identity features should be included on Haight Street. Examples include better lighting, wayfinding signage, history markers, public art – let us know what your priorities are! The workshop will be open house format, so come by any time between 6-8pm and stay for as long as you’d like. (Note: this meeting will only look at Haight Street. We’ll be re-examining Stanyan and Masonic later in 2014.)
Your feedback is important to us, and will help to inform how streetscape amenities are prioritized. We hope to see you at the event!
