Better Streets Plan process brings together staff of multiple
City agencies to comprehensively plan for streets. The Plan
seeks to balance the needs of all street users, with a
particular focus on the pedestrian environment and how streets
can be used as public space. The Plan reflects the understanding
that the pedestrian environment is about much more than just
transportation – that streets serve a multitude of social,
recreational and ecological needs that must be considered when
deciding on the most appropriate design.
The Better Streets Plan carries out the intent of San Francisco's Better Streets Policy, adopted by the Board of Supervisors on February 6, 2006.
