In 2014, the Helen MacGregor Task Force formed to redesign the Plaza at 5210 West Street, diagonally across from UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland.
The Task Force plans to address structural issues regarding the blighted Plaza, such as unmaintained trees and landscaping, poor lightening, homeless encampments, and possible illegal activities.
The re-design will make the Plaza user friendly and more visible to the surrounding communities and hospital staff, patients, and guests.
The representative stakeholders of the Task Force include UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland, the Santa Fe Community Association & Neighbors (Santa Fe CAN), Longfellow Community Association (LCA), a Bushrod neighborhood representative, Rebuilding Together Oakland and Councilperson Dan Kalb’s office.
