BLACK ROCK CITY 2012 PLAN


For your planning pleasure, here is the Black Rock City Plan for 2012.

 

BRC 2009 City Plan

In 2012, the annular streets are named:
Esplanade
Alyssum
Begonia
Columbine
Dandelion
Edelweiss
Foxglove
Geranium
Hyacinth
Iris
Jasmine
Kingcup
Lilac

The road circling Center Camp is named “Rod's Road” in honor of BRC designer Rod Garrett (1936-2011).

The light blue shaded area does not specify, but rather approximates where you will find reserved-placement, interactive theme camps (we're holding some prime space for the general public there too). Reserved theme camp space is marked on the playa with blue survey flags. Some of these plots are so large that they may appear unclaimed and available, when they actually are not. Be sure to camp outside the blue flagged zones to avoid encroaching on reserved zones, and then having to relocate your camp. Gates open at 6 pm Sunday 8/26. After 11:59 Sunday night, all truly unclaimed camping space everywhere is available to all.

The distance from the inner-most Esplanade street to the Man is 2400 feet. Esplanade to Alyssum Street, curb to curb, is 400 feet deep. Other mid-city double-deep blocks are 430 feet deep. The remaining blocks are 200 feet deep.

BOULEVARD G
A mid-city interactive boulevard, 40-foot wide Geranium street is adjacent to double-deep blocks and features art plazas at 4:30 and 7:30.

Public plazas are at Kingcup and 3:00, 6:00, and 9:00. We are holding most of the camping space around these plazas unreserved and available for the general public to occupy and maintain as an experiment in spontaneous urban planning and collaboration.
