2 Weeks of Online Workshops: March 15-19 + March 22-26, 2021


San Francisco Planning is updating the City’s General Plan. The General Plan creates a roadmap for the City’s growth and change over time. It consists of goals and policies that will help the City address topics such as racial and social equity, housing, mobility, safety, climate resilience, and land use.

These updates will carry out the Planning Commission's June 2020 directive to incorporate General Plan policies that advance racial and social equity. This work also actively informs the Department's response to the devastating health, economic, and housing crises resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. 

We want to make sure that the updated General Plan benefits all San Franciscans. Please join us for a series of virtual events to learn about the role of the General Plan and the updates that are being made. This is also an opportunity for you to share your ideas that San Francisco can take to achieve an equitable, livable, and sustainable future.

The main goals of these virtual events are to:

  • Make participation accessible for community members by offering several virtual event opportunities within a two-week period.
  • Gather input by offering more opportunities to influence the Department’s policy and program decisions.
  • Engage and build knowledge among San Franciscans, particularly American Indian, Black, and other People of Color on:
    • the role of the General Plan on the social and economic outcomes of our residents;
    • the work of the Planning Department in the context of the General Plan;
    • the importance of environmental justice in advancing racial and social equity; and
    • the Department’s approach to engagement, particularly during the Stay Safe at Home Order.
  • Offer a “one-stop-shop” for residents to meet with the City Agencies participating in the General Plan updates.
