The Eastern Neighborhoods Plans Turn 10

Lunchtime Forum

The Eastern Neighborhoods Plans, adopted by the city in 2009, are an ambitious set of community plans that have reshaped East SoMa, the Mission, Showplace Square/Potrero Hill and the Central Waterfront in an effort to balance residential and office growth with the preservation of industrial lands. Ten years later, what are the successes and failures? Join us for a conversation about what should have been done differently and what is yet to come. Co-presented by APA Northern California.
