Showplace Square/Northeast Mission Historic Resource Survey Community Workshop

From SF Planning:
This community meeting will discuss the recently completed historic resource survey in the Showplace Square/Northeast Mission area. At an upcoming public hearing at the Historic Preservation Commission, the Department will present recommendations for adoption of individual historic properties and/or historic districts as described in the survey. The Department invites you to give your input on the survey materials, including factual corrections, and asks that you direct your comments to the Department at the contact information listed below. There are no changes to the permitted uses or base zoning of properties as a result of the survey. The survey materials are available to the public for review at the Department offices and on the Department’s webpage located below.

The purpose of a survey is to identify and evaluate properties that appear to be historic resources eligible for listing in the National and/or California Registers, or are eligible for local designation. Actual listing/designation is not proposed at this time and would require a separate process and notification to property owners.
