San Francisco’s popular Shared Spaces program has an exciting new tool: an interactive map showing the locations and status of all the proposed Shared Spaces locations.

The map is designed to make it easier for people to find Shared Spaces, check on permit status, or simply track the progress of the program. The Shared Space Dashboard is updated daily.

Next Steps: Keep Evolving and More Outreach

The Shared Spaces program will continue to evolve with new health orders and as other types of business reopen. By looking at the data, we also know that there are more Shared Spaces in some neighborhoods than others. While some of that disparity is related to density and location of restaurants, we also know that not everyone has the resources to take advantage of these programs during this challenging time. In the weeks ahead, we are dedicating more resources to targeted outreach in areas that are not already benefiting from the program.
