San Francisco Plaza Proposal Package.

Propose a Pedestrian Plaza

Published: March 2016

by SF Planning, SF Public Works, SFMTA

Is there a place in your neighborhood where you’d like to test an idea for a temporary plaza? Perhaps it’s an empty lot, a really wide but not often used part of a road, or small alley? Here is a proposal package that will help you get started on firming up your concept. Pavement to Parks* can assess your proposal and advise on next steps to make sure that you build in stewardship, programming, and maintenance as part of the proposed idea. Proposals must be submitted by a sponsoring local organization; for example a Community Benefit District, Neighborhood Association, Merchants Association, or ‘Friends of’ group.

**The Pavement to Parks program is pleased to announce that it has merged with Groundplay. Best practices found in this document are still applicable to Groundplay projects.
