Open Space, Streetscape & Site Design Workshops (2010)
Workshop 1: Open House (February 20-21, 2010)
The planning process for the future parks and streets on the former Schlage Lock factory site kicked off with the Open Space, Streetscape and Site Design Open House, a two-day walk-in, walk-out public event at the Visitacion Valley Elementary School. See the Event Notices in English, in Spanish, or in Chinese.
The Open House Presentation Materials were organized into Stations (click on the links in blue to see the presentation boards for each station). Community participants were first introduced to the Purpose and Rules of the Open House. Then at Station 1, participants learned about the Project Background, including results of past planning processes, current planning efforts, and site conditions. Next at Station 2, participants voted on which set of Evaluation Criteria they thought are most important for creating and selecting among future alternative designs. Then at Station 3, participants voted on images of Open Space Characteristics they thought are most and least appropriate for the Project site. At Station 4, participants saw the Open Space Facilities that are existing in the community and what people have said in the past that they want to be built at the Project site. At Station 5, participants wrote down Public Comments for everyone to see. Finally at Station 6, participants learned about the Next Steps in the workshop series.

Workshop 2: Design Alternatives (April 3, 2010)
On April 3rd (10 am - 1 pm at Visitacion Valley Elementary School), we held the second public event, Workshop 2 - Open Space and Urban Design Alternatives. See the Event Flyer by clicking HERE.
During the event, Visitacion Valley residents and businesses shared ideas and provided input to the design of public spaces and community character at the former Schlage Lock factory site. The second workshop began with a Presentation on alternatives for the public spaces, which were developed based on the results of the first workshop. Participants then spent time at break-out groups doing interactive activities that allowed everyone to share their input and provide feedback of the different options, including their organization and character (look and feel).

Workshop 3: Preliminary Open Space Master Plan (May 22, 2010)
The third workshop was held at Visitacion Elementary School from 10:30am to 1:30pm. See the Event Flyer. The preliminary preferred alternative, designed in response to site conditions, regulatory requirements, public comments, etc., was shown in a Presentation. Members of the public then reviewed and provided written comments on the look and feel of this Preferred Alternative, followed by an hour of public discussions.

Design for Development Workshops (2006-2007)

Strategic Visioning Workshops (2002)
An initial, two-month community planning process began, with the support of the S.F. Planning Department and in conjunction with the office of Supervisor Sophie Maxwell, to guide the establishment of permanent zoning controls for the Schlage Lock property. The Planning Department publishes the results of the community planning process in the Strategic Concept Plan and Workshop Summary (Click Here to Download, 19.7MB) that calls for a transit and pedestrian-friendly mix of residential and neighborhood-serving retail and commercial development, including a full-service grocery store, as well as significant new open space and parks.
