Virtual Meeting and Survey to Refine the Design for Buchanan Street Mall

Capital Project Update

20210119_Community Meeting Announcement


The Western Addition community has been driving a new vision for Buchanan Mall since 2014. A Vision Plan was published in March 2017 and the conceptual design for all five blocks was approved in April 2020. With the passing of the Health and Recovery Bond in November 2020, the SF Recreation and Parks Department has secured funding to renovate the first block between Turk Street and Golden Gate Avenue!

 

Core Project Goals:

1. Safety, lighting, and beautification

2. Connect all blocks and unify the community

3. Tell the story of the community and the neighborhood

4. Social interaction and multi-generational recreation

5. Skills training and jobs creation

 

The Turk - Golden Gate block includes new gardens, lighting, and pathways, as well as seating areas, space for a micro-enterprise kiosk, a flexible event plaza, and a space where everyone can get out and play.

 

The Buchanan Street Mall project team is seeking community feedback to inform the look and feel and the specific equipment included in the new all-ages recreation area in the Turk - Golden Gate block. Please join us for a Virtual Community Meeting on January 19th at 6pm.
