SPUR Forum: New Plans for New Areas

From SPUR:

Much of San Francisco’s current development boom has its basis in the ambitious area plans the city adopted over the past decade. With no new area plans in the pipeline, however, smaller-scale planning efforts will be leading development into the future. Come learn about some of these targeted, tactical strategies that hope to yield both new housing and neighborhood-serving development. Co-presented by the San Francisco Housing Action Coalition and AIA San Francisco.
