Central SoMa Plan Legislative Package Available for Review - March 1st Planning Commission Hearing

The legislative package for the Central SoMa Plan is now available for review here

The legislative package includes the proposed Central SoMa Area Plan and other affiliated changes to the City’s General Plan. It also includes proposed amendments to the City’s Planning Code and Zoning Maps, as well as other documents that would help implement the Plan, including the $2 billion public benefits program, as well as guidance for design of new buildings and redesign of the neighborhood’s streets. Finally, for those of you who have been following this Plan closely, it includes a series of documents that detail how it has evolved since the release of the 2016 Draft Plan (so that you do not have to try to figure it out yourselves).

On Thursday, March 1st this legislative package will be before the Planning Commission for their “Initiation,” which is the first legal step necessary to turn this proposal into law. The meeting will be at City Hall in Room 400. The hearing starts at 1PM – though please check the Planning Commission’s agenda the Monday before the hearing to get a sense of where this item is in the calendar. If Initiation occurs on March 1st then they would return to the Planning Commission no sooner than March 22nd to start having hearings about Plan adoption. As a reminder, this Plan will then require approval by the Board of Supervisors.
