Visitacion Valley, Schlage Lock Green Connections Workshop

From sf-planning.org:

The San Francisco Planning Department & Mayor’s Office of Economic and Workforce Development in cooperation with UPC, invite you to revisit the VISITACION VALLEY / SCHLAGE LOCK PROJECT and to help develop a GREEN CONNECTION street in your neighborhood.

After the closure of the Schlage Lock factory in 1999, residents of Visitacion Valley partnered with City agencies and the Universal Paragon Corporation to develop a plan for the reuse and revitalization of this critical site in their community. Several years of analysis and an extensive community planning process concluded with the adoption of a Redevelopment Plan, zoning changes and a detailed master plan to guide change on the site. However, the demise of Redevelopment Agency in early 2012, and the loss of public funding that accompanied it, requires a fresh look at community’s goals for the site. At this workshop we will provide an update on the status of the Schlage Lock project, confirm community priorities, and evaluate the potential for a near-term project on the Schlage site.

We will also provide an update on the Green Connections project, present the DRAFT network and a design toolkit, and discuss what a Green Connection could look like in Visitacion Valley. We need your input – please join us!

Light refreshments and Cantonese translation will be provided.
