Green Connection Concept Design in Potrero Hill: 22nd Street
Time: 10:00 a.m. -12:00 p.m.
Location: UCSF, 654 Minnesota Street (between 18th Street and 19th Street)
The Green Connections project needs your input to design a Green Connection on 22nd Street to improve Potrero Hill’s connection to the waterfront!
Green Connections has developed a draft Citywide network of green connections, as well as a toolkit to guide their design. The next phase of the project includes a community based planning process to develop a streetscape design for six focus neighborhoods, including Potrero Hill.
This meeting will provide an overview of the Green Connections project, including the DRAFT network and design toolkit, discuss what a future Green Connection could look like in Potrero Hill, and ask community members to provide input on 22nd Street.
Green Connections will increase pedestrian and bicycle access to parks, open space and the waterfront, by re-envisioning City streets and paths as ‘green connectors’ that can be built over time.In the first year of the project, the focus will be to map a citywide network. The second year will build on this framework to design green connections in the following six neighborhoods: Bayview-Hunters Point, Chinatown, Potrero Hill, Tenderloin, Visitacion Valley and Western Addition.
Get involved! The project team will host many public events to engage communities in developing Green Connections. Visit the project web site below for project information, events and meetings. Also, sign up for the Green Connections mailing list to keep receiving future e-mail announcements.
