San Francisco Planning Department - City Design Group


The Work of Partners and Others

The Planning Department has a long history of leadership in city design. The early work on the bellwether Urban Design Plan, the first in the nation, remains the foundation of the City’s General Plan; the groundbreaking work of Donald Appleyard on livable streets; and the Downtown Plan, to name just a few.

But the Planning Department is not alone in thoughtful work in public realm design and planning. Others are involved in efforts to create a gracious public realm.
