Treasure Island Development Plans

Posted by shawnbot  | Categorized under Dataset
The Treasure Island Development Authority maintains a publishing repository for submitted master development plans in PDF form. The public would stand to benefit from access to the GIS data used to create these submissions, which could be used to accurately compare the island's existing geography—everything from the current street grid to earthquake liquefaction zones, EPA-designated superfund sites, and sea level rise predictions—with TIDA's vision for the future.

Several private entities have been contracted to design these plans, and they all stand to make a great deal of money from Treasure Island's development. Taxpayers have a right to know what their hard-earned dollars are buying, and future residents of the island should be informed of the potential risks of inhabiting the island. Furthermore, the release of this data could serve as an important precedent in future redevelopment planning processes, from which many citizens feel too far removed and uninformed to involve themselves.

DataSF is a clearinghouse of datasets available from the City & County of San Francisco. Our goal in releasing this site is:
(1) improve access to data
(2) help our community create innovative apps
(3) understand what datasets you'd like to see
(4) get feedback on the quality of our datasets.
