City planners set to discuss world's best-planned streets 

While San Francisco boasts some of the country’s most scenic, unique, and well-planned public streets, local planners still take cues from other international metro areas when designing new thoroughfares in The City.

Officials from The City’s Planning Department will outline new projects for San Francisco’s thoroughfares and discuss some of the best streets in the world at lunchtime forum next Tuesday at SPUR, a local think-tank.

David Alumbaugh, manager of the Planning Department’s City Design Group, Adam Varat, chief of the Better Streets Plan, and Neil Hrushowy, director of the city’s pedestrian program, will discuss best practices for mapping out city streets.

The meeting is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. on January 12 at SPUR’s headquarters at 654 Mission Street. Admission is free for SPUR members, and $5 to the general public.
