Since late 2012, the SF Planning Department has hosted a series of public meetings to develop a locally driven Haight-Ashbury Public Realm Plan. This plan will propose a series of street and streetscape improvements to make this vibrant neighborhood more comfortable and welcoming to all users, whether they are biking, walking or taking transit to their favorite destination.

Through community feedback, the three corridors that are prioritized include Haight Street, Stanyan Street and Masonic Avenue.  Based on the input from residents and merchants at the February workshop, the plan will move forward first with Haight Street improvements. These proposals will complement and enhance the SFMTA’s proposed changes as part of the Transit Effectiveness Project to increase the reliability and travel time of the 71-Haight bus line.

Tuesday, June 11 from 6-8PM
Park Branch Library at 1833 Page Street

The Planning Department will be holding their next workshop to do a deeper dive of the Haight Street proposals next week. This meeting will be an open house format, which gives you a chance to talk directly with representatives from Planning Department and the SFMTA.

For Stanyan Street and Masonic Avenue (click to view PDFs), the Planning Department will revisit those corridors later this year. The current proposals for Haight Street have minimal improvements to biking aside from traffic calming, but there are great ideas for better bicycle infrastucture on Stanyan and Masonic. Take a look at the proposals and be sure to join our District 5 committee below to stay in the loop on bike projects in your neighborhood.
