The Vision

Vision Blvd has clear goals: New housing, new public transit, new protected bike paths, and new green space featured along an upgraded one-mile long boulevard.

A true neighborhood that makes all San Franciscans proud.

Community led input

There are many proposed plans for the current 13th and Division Streets,

post-Central Freeway removal. The plans here are possibilities, and any final plan will encompass a variety of ideas from expert planners and community input.

Parks & Public Space

Integral to Vision Boulevard is the creation of much needed parks for the surrounding communities of SoMa and The Mission which currently suffer from

a lack of access to public parks within walking distance.

Housing

With upzoning of land uses along the corridor, many soft sites and parking
lots would be ripe for new housing development. Value capture of private parcels and sale of public parcels could help finance the Vision Boulevard project. Previous infrastructure projects, like the Octavia Blvd and the Transbay redevelopment plans, were financed in similar ways.
