Final Open House: Living Alleys Around Market and Octavia

From the SF Planning Department:

The SF Planning Department, Caltrans, SFMTA, and SF Public Works invite you to an Open House to unveil the Market Octavia Living Alley Toolkit. Since 2013, we have worked with community members to design and implement a network of Living Alleys in the Market Octavia Plan Area. This toolkit was created to give members of the community an understanding of the design elements and processes involved in creating your own living alley!

Stop by Wednesday, February 25, 2015 from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. for a short presentation and get a copy of the toolkit. After the presentation, we’ll be on hand to answer any questions you might have.

Light snacks will be provided. We hope to see you there!
