Public can weigh in on new name for San Francisco plaza

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency is hosting the naming contest for the plaza, which will be located next to the Phelan Loop Bus Terminal near the intersection of Ocean and Phelan avenues, according to SFMTA spokesman Paul Rose.

Anyone can participate in the online contest, which will continue until Oct. 15.

The SFMTA will collect suggestions under the categories of historic names, geographic names or significant natural features, purpose or function of the plaza, deceased people who have contributed to the community, or a name that commemorates a significant historical event or geographic location, according to Rose.

The plaza, which is set to break ground in two years, is envisioned as a hub linking residents, businesses, schools and Muni in addition to serving as an open-space venue for community events such as farmers markets and street fairs, SFMTA officials said.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helped secure $6.8 million in federal funding for the Phelan Loop bus facility, which will be strategically built next to an affordable-housing development and adjacent to CCSF, according to the SFMTA.
