Ocean Avenue is an important city arterial that links the Ingleside, Lake Merced, Twin Peaks, and Excelsior neighborhoods, and connects the adjacent communities to city and regional transportation services such as BART and Muni via the Balboa Park Station, I-280 Freeway, Muni K Line, and the Muni Phelan Loop. In addition, Ocean Ave hosts many neighborhood and civic services that impact the city at-large: City College of San Francisco, Balboa Park, Lick-Wilmerding High School, and the Ocean Ave commercial corridor. With current and upcoming planning and capital investment in the neighborhood, the corridor that links them all needs to have a design that will improve circulation and connection to all the street and the neighborhood has to offer.
The Ocean Avenue Corridor Design Project is a coordinated initiative of two projects, one near-term streetscape improvement project from Manor Drive to Phelan Avenue, and a longer-range planning initiative from Phelan Avenue to San Jose Avenue. In conjunction and collaboration with SF Planning and SFMTA, one community meeting has been hosted in March 2014, with two upcoming events in May and July of 2014 to discuss potential concept designs for the Ocean Avenue corridor. Preliminary meetings have suggested that community priority for the near-term streetscape improvement project focus on intersection improvements, additional greening and landscaping, and the creation of gathering spaces.
