Visitacion Valley

The planning for the Schlage Lock site has been under way for more than a decade. When a proposal for a Home Depot (2000) was met with community opposition, a collaborative planning process between the community and the City of San Francisco was launched to revitalize Visitacion Valley. The Process examined how to reuse the Schlage Lock site in a way that benefits the existing neighborhood. The planning effort culminated in 2009 with the adoption of the Visitacion Valley Redevelopment Plan and the Design For Development document. This Open Space and Streetscape Master Plan is one of the first implementation documents for the reuse of the Schlage Lock site.
