Gerald Green is the Director of Planning for the City of San Francisco. He has spent the past 20 years working in various positions in San Francisco city government with a focus on planning and development. During his tenure as Director, planning has played a more prominent role in the city, balancing the focus on development that held sway earlier. He has turned the efforts of the department more toward the neighborhoods, while still exerting a strong influence on such signature projects as the downtown Pacific Bell Baseball Park, the Mission Bay Redevelopment Plan and the new De Young Museum. Gerald used his Fellowship to study the ways in which the new urban economic and technological realities are impacting the urban design of cities for the next century.
