SF Planning Department

SF Planning

San Francisco Planning, under the direction of the Planning Commission, shapes the future of San Francisco and the region by: generating an extraordinary vision for the General Plan and in neighborhood plans; fostering exemplary design through planning controls; improving our surroundings through environmental analysis; preserving our unique heritage; encouraging a broad range of housing and a diverse job base; and enforcing the Planning Code.

Our vision is to make San Francisco the world’s most livable urban place – environmentally, economically, socially and culturally.
