Chinatown Broadway Street Design Final Report
Publication date: February 2013
In 2011, the San Francisco Planning Department partnered with the non-profit Chinatown Community Development Center (CCDC) to engage the Chinatown community in the redesign of Broadway in Chinatown. This effort was primarily funded by a $250,000 grant from the Caltrans Environmental Justice: Context Sensitive Planning Program.
The Planning Department and CCDC were joined by staff from the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) and the San Francisco Department of Public Works (DPW) to form an interagency team to lead the community planning effort. Community workshops were held in Chinatown on May 4, August 16, and November 16, 2011. A final community open house was held on June 6, 2012.
Through the community planning process, the project team worked with the community to evaluate existing conditions on the street and develop proposals for improvement. This document is a summary of that process and the recommendations that have been developed through the planning process to envision a new Broadway in Chinatown.
