About

The San Francisco Great Streets Project catalyzes the return of our city’s streets to their rightful place as the center of civic life in this wonderful city by working with government, business, and neighborhood leaders to test, analyze and institutionalize placemaking. We provide an expert series, provide critical resources to demonstration projects and reach out to new constituencies to engage them on how livable streets fits with their agendas.


Vision

San Francisco’s streets should attract people of all kinds to its network of great places connected by excellent sidewalks, bikeways and public transportation. Specifically, streets should be:

  • Compelling public spaces that build community, and keep people coming back, day after day, year after year.
  • The foundation of thriving shopping streets.
  • Safe, accessible, and welcoming to even the most vulnerable users.
  • Balanced, providing multi-modal mobility, with priority given to people on foot, bicycles and public transportation.

A successful network of places will return our city’s streets to their rightful place as the center of civic life, making our city a great place to live, do business and visit.
