Potrero Hill

Central Waterfront/Dogpatch Public Realm Plan

Status: Complete

The Central Waterfront of San Francisco continues to grow, accommodating both new housing and neighborhood commercial services, while maintaining many historic industrial marine functions. As more development is realized in the neighborhood, the public realm of the Central Waterfront should receive appropriate improvements that better serve residents and employees.

Public Realm Plan Adopted!

The Public Realm Plan was adopted by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in October 2018 (link to legislative record)

You can also download the Environmental Review for the Plan, an Addendum to the Environmental Impact Report previously prepared for the Eastern Neighborhoods Rezoning and Area Plans project.

 

The Central Waterfront / Dogpatch Public Realm Plan will set the framework for public space improvements in the neighborhood, guiding the investment of impact fees and other sources in the streetscapes and parks which tie the area together.
