Community Involvement

As UCSF prepared for the second phase of development at Mission Bay, we partnered with our Community Advisory Group (CAG) and convened the UCSF Mission Bay Community Task Force to examine the impact of UCSF on the communities surrounding the new campus.

During 2007 and 2008, the UCSF MBCTF held eight Community Task Force meetings and two Community Workshops to identify community issues related to the development of the UCSF Mission Bay campus and to develop community planning principles and include them in an amendment to UCSF’s Long Range Development Plan.

We are pleased to present the two key reports that were produced through the hard work of the Task Force:

Project Specifics

Organizations from the “Eastern Neighborhoods” surrounding UCSF Mission Bay campus—Dogpatch, Potrero Hill, South of Market, and the Mission—designated representatives for the UCSF Mission Bay Community Task Force; UCSF Community Advisory Group Members and officials from the Port of San Francisco and the SF City Planning Department also sat on the Task Force. (See the complete roster [PDF]).

To assist us in this process, we engaged Moore Iacofano Goltsman (MIG), a multidisciplinary firm specializing in urban and community design, public outreach, and facilitation. Founding principal Daniel Iacofano is a nationally recognized expert in the areas of process design and management, public participation and consensus building—specifically for development and planning projects. Daniel facilitated all of the proceedings.
