SFBC Arguello Brainstorming Workshop

From SFBC:

Arguello Boulevard is set for repaving in 2016 for a one-mile stretch connecting Golden Gate Park to the Presidio. This may seem like a long time from now, but early planning gives us the opportunity to think creatively about what Arguello could look like if it were more inviting and enjoyable for biking.
