Haight Ashbury Public Realm Plan Workshop

From SF Planning:

Please join us for a public workshop to discuss potential placemaking and transit improvements in the Haight Ashbury neighborhood!

For the past few months, we’ve been gathering input on the neighborhood’s streets and sidewalks, and have been working on a series of design alternatives that address key concerns. At this workshop, staff from the Planning Department will be on hand to discuss public realm proposals, and staff from the Municipal Transportation Agency will be present to look at physical improvements associated with transit proposals. Attendees will learn what we’ve heard from the community so far, and will have the opportunity to review and provide feedback on street designs. The input that we receive at this meeting will be used to select preferred alternatives and further develop them.

Please note that this workshop will address capital projects and physical changes. The MTA is holding a public meeting on February 18 that will address Muni service and routing changes; click here for more information.

Your feedback is important to us, and we hope to see you at the event!
