A Vision Framework Plan for the South Central Waterfront
The SCW Vision Framework Plan is the result of a multiyear effort of planning and community engagement. The Plan sets aspirations and recommendations to help ensure that expanded park spaces, public gathering places, green streets, and affordable housing are central to the future redevelopment of this rapidly changing area. The City Council will consider adopting the Plan at a June 9th public meeting.
