Mission Street Public Life Plan Open House
From SF Planning:
On February 19th, the Planning Department will be hosting an open house to debut the Mission Street Public Life Plan project. The project is a plan that will celebrate the identity of Mission Street from Van Ness Street to Randall Street. The plan will re-imagine Mission Street as a vital transit corridor with art, commerce and new public spaces for everyone to enjoy.
The Mission Street Public Life Plan will:
- Explore Mission Street identity
- Promote street as vital transit corridor
- Create opportunities for public space, art and business
- Test and pilot new ideas
The Mission Street Public Life Plan is looking at how Mission Street is currently used and is exploring new ideas that can express the needs and identity of its users
Working on one of the busiest transit corridors in the City, the Mission Street Public Life Plan team collaborates closely with and builds on the SFMTA Transit Effectiveness Project for the Mission 14 bus line.
The plan will create new opportunities for gathering spaces along the corridor while supporting transit service, and will promote local art and business as expressions of the unique identity of the street. Ideas will be developed for and with the Mission District community and through partnerships newly formed. The Plan will be a resource for community organizations and local stewards to celebrate this iconic street with creative street furnishings, art installations about history and evolving identities, storytelling, and gathering.
We will propose a set of strategies to encourage a blossoming of activities on the street. Pilot projects will illustrate the new ideas emerged from the plan and will support and encourage Mission people to take action
