Streets & Public Realm:      

Make streets safer, with traffic controls such as speed bumps Improve east-west linkages Enhance streets to be more inviting, with pedestrian-oriented design and wider sidewalks Streets should better support bicyclists, install more bike infrastructure Require new development to include meaningful open space Encourage creation of more open spaces o When public space is included in private development, these spaces need to be identifiable and accessible from outside of the building, with proper and legible signage. o Open space with community-driven programming for art and performances o Green, shaded spaces, vertical gardens o Expanded park hours Publicly accessible resources and amenities, look to Our Skid Row document o Public restrooms and other public facilities in parks o Facilities that are not affiliated with a particular service provider, this would allow those who are not affiliated with the service provider to benefit from the facilities. o Water fountains, hand washing, mobile showers o Property storage o Electric charging stations, laundry o Benches and seating o Workout equipment, outdoor recreation, and playgrounds for children o *Case study: San Francisco pit stop program & city attendants o *Suggestion to include these amenities in private development, and in public spaces such as parks
