Green Connections Open House

From the SF Planning Department:

Join us for an open house! Learn more about the project to date and provide feedback on the Draft Green Connections Network and Design Toolkit.

Green Connections will increase access to parks, open
space and the waterfront, by re-envisioning City streets and paths as ‘green connectors’. This project builds on current efforts to create sustainable corridors that enhance mobility, green neighborhood streets, and improve pedestrian and bicycle access to community amenities and recreational opportunities.

Green Connections is a two year project, funded by planning grant from the State of California Strategic Growth Council. In the first year, the focus will be Citywide to map a network of Green Connections. The second year will build on this framework to design green connections for specific neighborhoods, including Bayview-Hunters Point, Chinatown, Potrero Hill, Tenderloin, Visitacion Valley, and Western Addition.
