San Francisco’s Department of Public Works is working on a new plan for Potrero’s streetscape, with wider sidewalks, new landscaping, and pedestrian amenities added to Potrero Avenue between 17th Street and 25th Street. Currently in planning stages, the Potrero Streetscape Improvement plan is scheduled for completion in 2015.

The DPW held a public meeting to vote on which streetscape redesign plan the community liked best for the area between 22nd Street and 24th Street. Voters selected option 1, adding a planted center median, widened sidewalks on the eastern side, and 6′ bike lanes and pedestrian refuges. Plans for adjacent parts of Potrero already included both bike lane buffers and new landscaping in the center median, but the voter-approved section is the only part of Potrero Avenue that will lose parking spaces.

In addition to making Potrero Avenue more pedestrian- and bicycle-friendly, the improvements are likely to raise property values in the area. For more information about buying or selling a home in Potrero Hill, contact Evan Bliss at 415.816.9225 or evan@climbsf.com.
