Commemorative Sidewalk Plaques Planned

An important part of our work is helping residents, workers and visitors appreciate the history and culture of the District’s buildings and streets.

We are working on a project to install up to 49 bronze plaques at key historic locations around SoMa, in cooperation with the SF Arts Commission, Public Works, the SFMTA, and with funding provided by local developers.  You can read about it in the Bay Area Reporter article, easily viewable here.

We have a historic opportunity to commemorate the businesses and institutions that established the Leather and LGBTQ community in SOMA.

The project is planned to be presented to the Arts Commission in October or November, and we would love to hear your opinions about the plaque design and placement.  Public comment is welcome at the Arts Commission Hearing.
