Community Engagement

Place Lab is committed to deep and meaningful engagement with the communities in which we work. We also pride ourselves on frequent communication and collaboration with the various City agencies with jurisdiction over San Francisco's public realm. Because we believe that stakeholder input strengthens and enriches projects, particularly those situated in the urban shared public realm, the feedback we receive is directly informing our design and programming schemes for Oak Plaza in an ongoing, iterative process.
