Newcomb Streetscape Improvement Project

The Newcomb Streetscape Improvement Project is an innovative synthesis of community stewardship, agency collaboration, public realm enhancement, and environmental benefit in one of San Francisco’s most environmentally challenged neighborhoods.

Features of the Newcomb Streetscape Improvement Project will include significant areas for stormwater management, permeable surfaces, and a robust canopy of street trees along both block frontages.  New features will provide a repeating series of green areas integrally connected to the overall streetscape design.  The enhancements will beautify the block, create gathering places for residents, and transform a barren strip of concrete into an urban oasis that functions with, instead of against the natural functions of the landscape.
