Thanks so much to everyone who has participated in the McLaren Park Vision Plan Process. The Recreation and Park Commission approved the Vision Plan and the expenditure of the 2012 Bond money in November 2017 for the Tier One Priority Projects.
With help from our design and outreach consultant team, we have created a report that documents the overall Vision Plan Process and the Tier One Priority Projects that resulted from it. To view it click here and click here to view the Appendix.
If you have comments on the report please feel free to reach out to Alexis Ward at Alexis.Ward@sfgov.org.
