This Week in Livable Streets Events

This week there are plenty of opportunities to get involved in shaping the future of your community, clean and green it up now, and take a look back at SF’s architectural tradition. Best of all, the workweek winds down with a Livable Streets tradition — PARK(ing) Day! Here are the highlights.

  • Monday: Public Meeting for South City’s Biking Future. The City of South San Francisco is preparing its first Bicycle Master Plan. Join this public meeting, as part of a special Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee meeting to review proposed bicycle improvements and receive input from residents/business owners/commuters. 6 p.m.
  • Tuesday: SPUR Lunchtime Forum: Play in the City. See the plans for a new playground in Dolores Park, including new play structures made of green materials, improved signage and a new drainage system. 12:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday: Community Meeting: Glen Park Community Plan. Learn about the Glen Park Community Plan. The Planning Department will be there to answer questions on the planning process, infrastructure improvements and new development. 6:30-8:30 p.m.
  • Friday: PARK(ing) Day. PARK(ing) Day is an annual, one-day event where artists, activists, and citizens collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spots into "PARK(ing)" spaces: temporary public parks. These temporary parks will be set up all over town throughout the day.
  • Saturday: Coastal Cleanup – Community Clean Team District 10. Join your neighbors to beautify your community and help keep San Francisco clean, green, and graffiti free. SFPDW is looking for volunteers to help clean up the neighborhoods, parks and San Francisco coastline throughout District 10. 9 a.m.-12 p.m. 
  • Sunday: Second Bay Traditions Bicycle Ride: A Tour of San Francisco Modern Architecture. This bicycle tour will focus on notable modern residential architecture outside of San Francisco’s downtown core. It will look at works by Second Bay Area Tradition architects and contemporaries, including buildings by Richard Neutra, William Wurster, Gardner Dailey, Henry Hill, Joseph Eichler and Anshen + Allen. 11 a.m.
