Chinatown Green Alleyway Community Meeting

From SFPUC:

Share your ideas and hear from others about planning  green infrastructure and alleyway improvements in San Francisco’s Chinatown on August 20.

On Spofford Alley, we have the opportunity to use innovative green infrastructure technologies to resolve stormwater issues and also enhance the neighborhood.

Help us explore the possibility of extending these technologies and site improvements to neighboring alleyways. Green infrastructure technologies may include rain gardens and permeable pavement to naturally capture stormwater before it enters our combined sewer system.

The Chinatown Green Alleyway is a partnership between the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission, the San Francisco Department of Public Works, and the Chinatown Community Development Center.

We hope to see you on August 20 – help us spread the word.
