In 2009, Supervisor Sophie Maxwell and the San Francisco Planning Department convened the Showplace Square Open Space Planning Process. The purpose of this process was intended to identify, design, and prioritize the community's open space needs, continuing the work of the Eastern Neighborhoods Plan, which became law on January 19, 2009. The Showplace Square Open Space Plan was completed in the Spring of 2010, and is now being implemented by the Planning Department in conjunction with other City agencies.

Meeting #2 - Wednesday, September 23, 2009
The purpose of this meeting was to present the Planning Department's preliminary concepts for an open space network serving Showplace Square. These concepts represent a synthesis of the input we've received from the community thus far. Our presentation included initial thoughts on individual open space sites, as well as how these sites might be connected within Showplace and to the surrounding communities. During this meeting, the community was asked to help us refine and/or revise these initial concepts.
