About the Project

The Lower Haight Public Realm Plan aims to develop a community-based vision for the neighborhood's public realm: its streets, sidewalks, parks, and public places. Based on this vision, the Plan will propose recommendations that would complement and enhance the area's public realm. The Plan will also incorporate conceptual streetscape designs for pedestrian amenities such as lighting, greenery, and signage to create a more safe, comfortable, and efficient environment for all users, whether they walk, bicycle, use transit, or drive. Finally, the Plan will explore ways to promote the public realm as a place reflective of the neighborhood's unique character.

The Lower Haight Public Realm Plan is inspired by a proposal from the Lower Haight Merchants and Neighbors Association (LoHaMNA) and is made possible by generous funding through District 5 Supervisor London Breed.
