Rincon Hill Plan Update at Planning Commission this Thursday

I know that the 1:30 p.m. time of this Planning Commission meeting on Thursday makes it nearly impossible for the majority of Rincon Hill residents to attend, but please do attend if you can do so to make public comments about the need for infrastructure in the Rincon Hill neighborhood – especially traffic calming streetscape modifications, continuous sidewalks (south side of Harrison Street comes to mind), and other changes that are needed to make the area safer for residents to get around. This is one of the few opportunities to get the spotlight close to our southern border because the Transbay Transit Center will be drawing a lot more attention soon.

The meeting agenda is available online with items 9 through 12 all pertaining to the Rincon Hill neighborhood.

One Response to Rincon Hill Plan Update at Planning Commission this Thursday

There’s also decisions on extending permits for 340 Fremont, 399 Fremont, and 45 Lansing Street. […]
