Fenced Off SoMa Plaza Draws Ire

Renovated in 2014, McCoppin Hub is a plaza off Market and Valencia. Originally planned to host movie nights, food trucks, and pedestrians passing through the area, it ended up being fenced off earlier this year due to local concerns about loitering from the homeless in the neighborhood.

The fence went up over the summer, and Supervisor Jane Kim's office says local complaints have plummeted since that happened. However, the SoMa plaza would ideally be reopened soon, and Supervisor Kim plans to hold a community meeting early next year to gather input from residents.
