About the Project

The Haight-Ashbury Public Realm Plan will develop a community-supported vision for the neighborhood’s streets, sidewalks, and public places.

Based on this vision, the Plan will propose a series of projects and initiatives that can be built over time. New streetscape designs, parking and circulation plan, and a plan for pedestrian amenities like lighting and signage will make the streets more safe, comfortable, and efficient for all users, whether they walk, bicycle, use transit, or drive, and will promote the streets as a place for vibrant street life and activity. The Plan will build on and enhance the Haight-Ashbury’s unique identity as a diverse residential neighborhood, a thriving commercial corridor, and an international tourist destination.

Project Timeline

The Haight Ashbury Public Realm Plan will identify both short-term interventions and a long-term vision for the neighborhood. In coordination with MTA's ongoing Muni Forward effort, this project will develop a final design that includes transit and streetscape improvements.
