Bayshore Multi-Modal Facility Study Open House

From SF Planning Dept.:

Join the City & County of San Francisco to discuss the Bayshore Multi-Modal Facility Study. The Study will analyze alternatives, recommend a location and conceptual design, and provide an implementation plan for a multi-modal facility in the Bayshore area.

At the open house, staff will ask for your input on preferred elements at a multi-modal facility, potential locations to evaluate, and our method of evaluating. The City & County will host another event in 2016 to discuss a preferred location and conceptual drawings.

It will be “open house style,” with boards around the room and the opportunity to talk to City staff one on one and provide direct feedback on the study locations, facility make-up and evaluation method. There will not be a formal presentation, so feel free to come by anytime between 6 and 8 p.m.

Light refreshments served. Cantonese interpretation will be provided.

For language assistance or disability accommodations, please contact Candace SooHoo at with your request no later than Thursday, October 1, 2015.
