San Francisco Planning Department 1 Seifel Consulting Inc. Eastern Neighborhoods Needs Assessment December 2007 I. Introduction The City of San Francisco Planning Department (Planning Department) is evaluating the potential rezoning of land within the Eastern Neighborhoods and Central Waterfront areas, as well as other areas of the City. In Spring 2006, the Planning Department retained Seifel Consulting Inc. (Seifel) to assess the current and future need for key services and amenities in the Eastern Neighborhoods and Central Waterfront areas in order to inform the Planning Department’s evaluation. The initial needs findings were memorialized in the Draft Eastern Neighborhoods Needs Assessment, September 2006. In October/November 2007, Seifel updated the 2006 initial need findings in light of additional research and time passed. The services and amenities covered in this assessment include open space, parks and recreational facilities, community facilities and services, neighborhood serving businesses, and housing. The Planning Department is evaluating funding mechanisms to address the needs for some key services and amenities. This report will help inform the rezoning process and the decision of what funding mechanisms to pursue for various needs. This report begins by describing the study area in Chapter II, and then outlines demographic sources and techniques used to perform the needs analysis in Chapter III. Chapter IV provides a summary of findings including tables showing projected needs and need category definitions. Chapter V presents the needs analysis by category, and Chapter VI concludes the report. II. Study Area Seifel evaluated the current and future needs in four neighborhoods within the Eastern Neighborhoods and Central Waterfront areas. Mission Showplace Square/Potrero Hill Eastern South of Market Area (SOMA) Central Waterfront In the rest of this memo, these areas are collectively called the “Eastern Neighborhoods.” The findings and methodology from the needs assessment for these four neighborhoods are described within this memorandum. Appendix A includes a summary needs table and detailed tables by neighborhood. In addition, Seifel assessed the current needs in the Western SOMA neighborhood, which is included in Appendix B.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
