Yerba Buena Community Benefit District

San Francisco, CA

In an era where funding for public landscapes is diminishing, communities are more than ever required to develop new methods to contribute to the design of their public landscapes. CMG partnered with the Yerba Buena Community Benefit District to lead a community-based planning effort to improve the public landscape within the Yerba Buena District. 

The Yerba Buena Street Life Plan proposes 36 community-vetted projects and initiatives for this San Francisco district, including redesigned alleys, public art, sidewalk improvements, and new public spaces.

Since the release of the plan, several priority proposals have been completed or commenced design, including: Annie Street Plaza, custom bike racks and benches, and improvements associated with the Moscone Center’s Expansion.
