The Market and Octavia Neighborhood Plan considers the general area within a short walking distance of Market Street between the Van Ness Avenue and Church Street Muni stations and along the new Octavia Boulevard on the former Central Freeway right-of-way.

After several years of analysis and community process, the adoption phase of the Market & Octavia Area Plan is now concluded. The Area Plan has been in affect since May 31, 2007, after being approved by the Board of Supervisors and the Mayor. A summary of the plan is available here.

The Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) has been convened and is meeting on a regular basis to help implement the Area Plan. For more information on this group please visit the Market & Octavia CAC website.
