The planning for the Schlage Lock site has been under way for more than a decade.
When a proposal for a Home Depot (2000) was met with community opposition, a
collaborative planning process between the community and the City of San Francisco
was launched to revitalize Visitacion Valley. The Process examined how to reuse the
Schlage Lock site in a way that benefits the existing neighborhood. The planning
effort culminated in 2009 with the adoption of the Visitacion Valley Redevelopment
Plan and the Design For Development document. This Open Space and Streetscape
Master Plan is one of the first implementation documents for the reuse of the
Schlage Lock site.
