Engaging the Civic Center community

As part of the SF Planning Department's Civic Center Public Realm Plan, the Mobile Outreach Station is a fun engagement tool that enables people to look at the project area in a new way and offer the chance to learn about the project, offer feedback, and have a little fun.

The installation is mobile and can be deployed to any part within the Civic Center Area to reach a multitude of audiences and stakeholder. When deployed, passers-by have the opportunity to be a 'giant' in their own neighborhood! A miniaturized City Hall functions as a suggestion box, a large aerial photo and community chalkboard invite feedback and ideas for the future of the Civic Center area. A feedback wall on axis with 'Market Street' offer a place for respite, reflection and meaningful conversation between project staff and other participants.
