Central SOMA Plan

The Central SoMa Plan was introduced in 2011, ostensibly as a way to increase housing and jobs as well as to promote transit-oriented growth. However, without meaningful input from local residents, the people of SoMa will see a familiar narrative unfold: eviction, displacement, and gentrification. 

SOMCAN has been actively engaging with the Plan to ensure that the interests of low-income youth and families are represented in the massive rezoning effort, which will allow offices, houses, and hotels to be built where they were previously banned.
