BLACK ROCK CITY 2013 PLAN


For your planning pleasure, here is the Black Rock City Plan for 2013.

 

BRC 2009 City Plan

In 2013, the annular streets are named:
Esplanade
Airstrip
Biggie Size
Consumer
Desiderata
Extraterrestrial
False Idol
GDP
Holy
Interstellar
John Frum
Kowtow
Laissez-faire

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.

The distance from the inner-most Esplanade street to the Man is 2400 feet. Esplanade to Airstrip 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.

BURNER EXPRESS BUS CAMPING
To encourage event travel via High Occupancy Vehicles, this year we are providing some reserved camping for participants traveling via approved Burner Express Buses. As indicated in green on the plan above, adjacent to the reserved 6:00 Street theme camp core, the remaining space in the group of four blocks between GDP Boulevard and Interstellar Street, and 5:45 and 6:15, will be held for these participants. The Burner Express Bus Stop is located at GDP and 6:15.

Public plazas are located at Kowtow 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.
