CCSF Master Plan aims to replace parking lost to development and Performing Arts Center

San Francisco City College has released five options for their Master Plan. Financed by a general obligation bond, the College proposes many new facilities, including new classroom buildings, a performing arts center, a new child care center and a new student union. (Scroll down for diagrams of the five proposed options.)

The element that is of particular interest to the surrounding neighborhoods is, of course, the proposed parking arrangements. CCSF intends to replace each of the one thousand parking spots that will be lost to the Reservoir housing and open space development. They also plan to replace the five hundred spots that will be lost to the anticipated Performing Arts Center. For comparison, think about the San Francisco’s largest garage, the eighteen hundred spot Fifth and Mission Garage.

To do this, CCSF is looking at splitting the parking up between three or four parking structures in the upper reservoir, at Phelan and Judson, at Phelan and Ocean, and behind the football field at a cost of $38,000 or more per stall. The structure at the football field would have to use Circular Avenue and Havelock Street for access.

CCSF is a part of the neighborhood-wide Transportation Demand Management study that is going on now and will announce a plan by the end of the year. The plan will as the Planning Department website says, “provide a compilation of short- and long-term recommendations for the City, City College, and the future Balboa site that allows for the most efficient use of limited transportation infrastructure while minimizing impacts on the Balboa Park community.  The Plan will advise on the best approach to implement these recommendations and identify traffic circulation needs for further study.”

Considering that CCSF’s current parking plan will likely lead to lots of traffic on streets that are already at capacity we hope that the TDM finds other ways to get students and faculty to school without quite as much space and money being devoted to parking.

The five options will be discussed at the next few workshops and meetings of the Facilities Master Plan Project.
