In-Kind Agreement Process
Eagle Plaza has received a majority of its needed funding from an In-Kind Agreement (IKA) between the City and County of San Francisco (CCSF) and the owners of 1532 Harrison, an adjacent multi-family housing project approved in October 2015. Learn more about San Francisco's innovative IKA process here. Through this IKA, a portion of the area plan development impact fees generated by 1532 Harrison funds much of the design and construction costs of Eagle Plaza. These funds are supplemented by additional sources such as grants and charitable contributions. To date, Eagle Plaza has been awarded two major grants to offset the plaza's costs: a $100,000 Complete Neighborhoods Grant from the Mayor's Office of Housing and Community Development and a $100,000 Community Challenge Grant from the SF Planning Department.
In September 2015, Eagle Plaza's $1.5M IKA funding request received unanimous support from the Eastern Neighborhoods Citizens Advisory Committee (ENCAC), and in February 2016, the San Francisco Planning Commission unanimously approved the $1.5M In-Kind Fee Waiver for Eagle Plaza.
