The city is accepting public comment on plans to improve Austin Alley as part of the Polk Streetscape project.
The plans were presented by the San Francisco Department of Public Works to a meeting of the Lower Polk Neighbors on August 9th.
“The concept presented at the meeting is pretty close to the final design,” said agency spokesperson Coma Te. The plans were derived from The Lower Polk Alleyways District Vision Plan, which had an extensive community planning process, he said.
Current plans for upgrading the alley include nine new street trees and an elevated plaza near Polk Street that would include café-style seating.
