On Wednesday, September 10, Heritage and the San Francisco Planning Department will co-host a public open house to present a draft Preservation Element for the City’s General Plan. The open house will take place at the San Francisco Old Mint, located at 88 5th Street, from 6 – 7:30 p.m.
The city’s General Plan is a comprehensive planning document that guides decision-making on land use issues for public and private property. It includes 11 elements ranging from transportation to community facilities to arts. General Plan policies spur the creation of new legislation as well as changes to the Planning Code, in addition to informing the Department’s work program.
The Preservation Element will establish a long-range vision for the protection of historic resources in San Francisco, and will set forth a series of goals, objectives, and policies to accomplish that vision over time. Please join Heritage and the Planning Department on September 10 to share your ideas about the direction of preservation in San Francisco! For more information please visit the Department’s webpage.
