Join us (virtually or in person) on Wednesday, July 28, for the final design review community meeting for the Octavia Historic Commemoration Project!

It’s been over a decade and a half since the Central Freeway was demolished, and later replaced by Octavia Boulevard, Patricia’s Green and new housing. The removal of the freeway is a pivotal part of the history of San Francisco and Hayes Valley, yet is still unknown to many.

The community has discussed for many years the possibility of telling this the story with a commemorative installation in Patricia’s Green or along the Boulevard. With this in mind, the Market/Octavia Citizens Advisory Committee (MOCAC), in partnership with the San Francisco Planning Department and the San Francisco Parks Alliance, has undertaken an exploration under the name of the “Market/Octavia Historic Commemorative Project”. We invite you to be a part of San Francisco history by getting involved in the creation of this installation!
