City Streets comprise 25% of San Francisco’s land area. Most of San Francisco’s street area is used for the movement and storage of private autos, but there is a growing movement to unlock City streets’ potential as temporary and permanent spaces for active transportation, meeting, play, community, greenery, nature, and managing urban waters. This moderated discussion features the region’s foremost leaders in imaginative street and public space design. Together, we will explore the ways San Franciscans are already reclaiming city streets, and the landscape of opportunities that lie ahead.
