This Week in Livable Streets Events

An exciting week of livable streets discussions lies ahead, with a well-earned cookout to round things out. Here are the week’s highlights.

  • Tuesday: SPUR Evening Symposium: The Post-Carbon City: Planning for abundance in an era of dwindling resources. A panel will discuss Eco-Urbanism, "a movement that emphasizes sustainability, as planners promote green buildings, ‘closed-loop’ architecture and neighborhood planning, and seek to build robust transit systems that can play a role in reducing emissions." 6 p.m.
  • Wednesday: SPUR Lunchtime Forum: The architecture of Eco-Urbanism. The Treasure Island redevelopment project establishes relationships between buildings, open space, transportation, views and natural forces. Craig Hartman of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and Kevin Conger of CMG Landscape Architecture discuss the creation of this compact, transit-oriented community. 12:30 p.m
  • Wednesday: Mission Streetscape Community Design Workshop 4. Cyclists and pedestrians can make sure the SF Planning Department incorporates the best designs and options in the new Mission Streetscape Plan by having their say on what they’d like this important street to look like. 6:30-8:30 p.m.
  • Friday: Bike to Work with Supervisor Eric Mar. Talk policy points or trade political gossip with Supervisor Eric Mar on this monthly tradition. 8 a.m.
  • Saturday: From the Ground to the Sky: A Neighborhood Vision Rises From the Concrete. Team up for an "inspirational day of art and movement activities with neighborhood residents, local artists, health promotoras, community gardeners and organizers." Neighborhood families will be engaged in "community affirming exercises that capture the possibilities of developing a full service, holistically planned community site with potential eco-friendly affordable housing, green space, education and job center" at this PUC-owned parking lot. 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
  • Sunday: Gears and Grills Summer Cookout. Join the SFBC and fellow hungry cyclists for a moderately-challenging, scenic summer ride to a tailgate cookout. 11 a.m.-2 p.m.
