REMINDER: Speak Up for the Old Mint on 12/9

Central SoMa Plan Open House

Wednesday, December 9, 2015

6:00pm - 8:00pm

Location:

SPUR Urban Center

654 Mission Street

San Francisco, CA 94105

The Central SoMa Plan Open House is a crucial opportunity for the public to urge the city to make the Old Mint a priority to receive public benefits funding to be generated under the plan. The Planning Department is studying how to distribute the expected $2 billion in public benefits funding available for community projects under the Central SoMa Plan. At the end of the open house, attendees will be able to submit their preferences.

The Old Mint is shuttered and in need of $70-$100 million for rehabilitation. In 2015, it became one of very few historic properties to be named to the National Trust’s annual list of America’s 11 Most Endangered Places for a second time. The building is ideally situated to be a centerpiece of San Francisco’s civic life, geographically close to public transit and a concentration of other cultural institutions and convention facilities in the area.
