The Excelsior & Outer Mission Neighborhood Strategy (bounded by the I-280 on the north and west, McLaren Park on the East, and Daly City on the South), will develop a vision for improving and enhancing the Excelsior, Outer Mission, Mission Terrace, Crocker Amazon, and Cayuga neighborhoods. The Strategy will strive to maximize the benefits of ongoing and future projects, working toward making the area an even better place to live and visit. 

This neighborhood-level visioning process requires ongoing dialogue between City officials and community leaders, residents, students, service providers, property owners, and others to consider practical approaches to implement the necessary public improvements and investments.

Please join us and be a part of the conversation about your neighborhood's future.

Strategy Components

  • Existing Conditions – Understanding where the area is today.
  • Corridor Strategy – A vision for the look, feel, and life of the main corridors.
  • Neighborhood Strategy – A vision for the look, feel, and life of surrounding neighborhoods.
