Green Connections Final Open House

From SF Planning Dept.:

Join us for the Final Open House!
The open house will feature the final Green Connections plan. Over the last two years, we’ve collected your input on the route you take to parks, your vision for a green connection and various ways our streets can be improved to calm traffic and integrate urban ecology.
Join us in celebrating the work that has taken place and find out how to bring a Green Connection to your neighborhood.

About the Project:

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 will result in a Citywide network of green streets that can be built over time, improving pedestrian and bicycle access to parks, open space and the waterfront.

At the end of the project, four products will be developed:

  • A Citywide map of Green Connections – draft available
  • Design Toolkit – draft available
  • Conceptual street designs in six neighborhoods 
  • Implementation Document
