Central Corridor Draft Plan Workshop

From SF Planning:

We hope that you have had a chance to read through the Central Corridor Draft Plan for public review. The environmental review process is now underway to analyze the Draft Plan; with a Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) anticipated for mid-2014, and the Final EIR estimated to be ready at the end of 2014.

The Planning Department will be hosting a series of regular monthly working sessions, or roundtables, on key topics in the Draft Plan. These collaborative, informal sessions will be focused on specific policy or design matters related to the Draft Plan, and will help us refine the Plan, especially its zoning controls and design guidelines, for adoption in late 2014.

This session will not be used to dive into any specific topic, but will be used as a brainstorming session to develop a list of specific topics that you would like to focus on for one or more of these future sessions. We want to make sure we know what you want to discuss, and which issues are your priorities. Based on conversations to date, a partial preliminary list of these topics includes:

• Specific use controls (e.g. hotels, formula retail)
• Lot consolidation
• Incentives for retention of non-historic buildings
• Floor Area Ratio/Transferrable Development Rights
• Setbacks, building bulk controls
• Key development site design guidelines
• Open space design
