Document Description
The project sponsor, the Planning Department, on behalf of the City and County of San Francisco, is proposing the Fisherman's Wharf Public Realm Plan ("FWPRP or proposed project"). The San Francisco Planning Department is the lead agency under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The proposed project's general boundaries are San Francisco Bay to the north. The Embarcadero to the east, Bay Street to the south, and Van Ness Avenue to the west. The FWPRP would provide an overall vision for the streets, open spaces and building design in Fisherman's Wharf. The Plan would adopt design guidelines, minor zoning changes and policies to the Plan Area. It would also implement parking signage program, traffic circulation plan, passenger and freight loading management, two neighborhood gateway improvement projects, nine streetscape improvement projects and three open space improvement projects to the neighborhood. The FWPRP would include the following design elements: realignment of streetcar rails on Jefferson Street, street trees; raised crosswalks, curb extensions; high visibility crosswalks; permeable paving, stormwater planters and other landscape improvements; seating; informational stationary signage; and pedestrian lighting.
