Opportunity Mapping for San Francisco Parklets and Plazas
From SF Planning:
Please join us for a lunchtime presentation by Gene Stroman, GIS Researcher through the San Francisco Parks Alliance, who will present the findings of geospatial analysis on parklets & temporary plazas in San Francisco.
As Pavement to Parks approaches the start of its fifth year, the demand from communities for new public spaces continues to increase. Parklets, temporary plazas, and other tactical activation projects continue to proliferate across San Francisco; provoking questions in an ongoing conversation about access to and creation of open space. Where exactly have parklets, temporary plazas, and other interventions emerged across the City? What geophysical, demographic, and land use factors contribute to their emergence and success? What neighborhoods and demographics do they serve? Where are the best opportunities to introduce new public spaces to create better access for all San Franciscans?
Lunch will be provided by the Friends of City Planning. Please RSVP at sfpavementtoparks.sfplanning.
