San Francisco + San José + Oakland

POSTPONED: A 'Bigger Picture' for the Bay Area, Part 2


Oakland and san Francisco

POSTPONED: SPUR staff is working diligently to reschedule this digital discourse for later this year to align closer with the publication of the two projects that serve as the content for the program. For questions or comments, please reach out to SPUR Public Programs at

As part of its forward-looking Regional Strategy, SPUR and AECOM, along with a taskforce of community stakeholders in San Francisco, San José and Oakland, identified seven key sites spread across the Bay Area’s three central cities that are prime opportunities to tackle major regional challenges through local planning processes. Come learn about the last two ideas of the series: one on expanding and connecting all of San Francisco to the region and beyond through public transportation; and the second about the Oakland Coliseum, one of the most important redevelopment sites in the Bay Area.
