Haight Ashbury Streetscape Open House

From SF Planning:

Join us for an open house to discuss ways to celebrate Haight Street’s identity!

At our February public workshop, there was a lot of excitement about the possibilities for Haight Street between Central and Stanyan. Since then, we’re moving forward to refine public realm ideas in coordination with the MTA’s proposed transit improvements along the Haight Street corridor. In the next few months, we will be making decisions about what sort of amenities and identity features should be included on Haight Street. Examples include better lighting, wayfinding signage, history markers, public art – let us know what your priorities are! The workshop will be open house format, so come by any time between 6-8pm and stay for as long as you’d like. (Note: this meeting will only look at Haight Street. We’ll be re-examining Stanyan and Masonic later in 2014.)

Your feedback is important to us, and will help to inform how streetscape amenities are prioritized. We hope to see you at the event!

The Park Branch Library is ADA accessible. For language assistance or disability accommodations, please contact us with your request at least three business days in advance.
