Hear from San Francisco Public Works' Edgar Lopez, City Architect and Deputy Director, and Ronald Alameida, Director of Project Management, on the Capital Plan and what it means for businesses in San Francisco.
The Fiscal Year 2018-2027 City and County of San Francisco Capital Plan is the City’s commitment to building a more resilient and vibrant future for the residents, workers, and visitors of San Francisco. Updated every odd-numbered year, the Plan is a fiscally constrained expenditure plan that lays out infrastructure investments over the next decade. This document is the product of input from Citywide stakeholders, who have put forth their best ideas and most realistic estimates of San Francisco’s future needs.
Edgar Lopez is the City Architect and Deputy Director for San Francisco Public Works. He leads the Building Design and Construction team responsible for delivering a wide range of capital projects and programs totaling more than $4 billion.
