Implementing our Community Plans

Over the past several years, the Planning Department, in collaboration with community stakeholders, has developed and adopted several Area Plans to guide neighborhood growth and change, and imagine community improvements and programs 20 years into the future. As the Area Plan neighborhoods gain new residents and workers, there is an accompanying need for improved public infrastructure and amenities, such as parks, street improvements, transit and child care centers.

The revenue has gone to ongoing funding for child care centers in the Eastern Neighborhoods, SoMa, and Market Octavia. So far, the City has raised about $300M in impact fee revenue and expects to raise about $400M over the next ten years.

IPIC publishes a report each year to highlight and document ongoing progress in delivering community improvements as called out in the respective Area Plans (see Monitoring Plan Success tab).

The following reports provide snapshots of the success of certain Area Plans, assessing development patterns, impact fee projections, and capital projects.
