Public Realm Plan & CCI Action Plan

The Civic Center Public Realm Plan is a process that is now underway and will create a long-term vision for improvements to Civic Center’s plazas, streets, and other public spaces. The plan will build on the Civic Center Initiative’s current efforts and major new investments such as the Bi-Rite Cafe and Helen Diller Civic Center Playgrounds, which are building momentum for the plan’s future capital investment and sustainable management plan.
