SPUR Forum: The Blue Greenway

From SPUR:

The Blue Greenway is a City project to improve and expand the public open space network along the central and southern waterfront, from China Basin Channel to the San Francisco county line. Its focus is to identify where new parks and public spaces can be created to connect with existing open spaces in this industrial and mixed-use area. David Beaupre, senior planner from the Port of San Francisco, and other agency representatives will provide an overview of the planning process and current status of the program.
