Canceled: 17th and Folsom Appeal Hearing

Thursday, April 14th, 2011

The Planning Commission appeal hearing for the environmental review of the proposed park at 17th and Folsom has been canceled. From Sue Exline, the Citywide Policy Planner at the S.F.

Planning Department, on April 14, 2011:

Dear Community Members,
Many of you may have heard that an appeal of the environmental review on the proposed park at 17th and Folsom was to be heard today at the Planning Commission today. We are happy to share the news that the appellant has withdrawn his appeal and so this item will NOT be at the Planning Commission today. We look forward to continuing to work with the community on concerns over the loss of parking in the area.

Also, I wanted to take this opportunity to give a brief project update. We have been working closely with all the City agencies to coordinate the jurisdictional transfer of the site. We anticipate this will be completed this summer and that we will be able to come back to the community late summer to finalize the park design.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Thanks again for your participation in this project!

Blue Greenway Update: 11.9.2010

Blue Greenway Project for San Francisco’s Southeast Waterfront Gains National Support
Federal Support Provides a Local Voice for 13 Miles of Waterfront Parks

NPC was recently awarded $175,000 from the EPA to heighten local community involvement in the execution of the Blue Greenway through a Brownfields Area–wide Planning process.

The geographic area of focus of NPC’s Area-Wide Plan will include brownfield-impacted land currently not funded for remediation along the Blue Greenway alignment in Bayview, and India Basin. These neighborhoods represent the historical industrial heart of the city and are plagued by Brownfields, areas of containing industrial waste and toxins.

With the support of the EPA’s Brownfields Area-Wide Planning Pilot Program, NPC will facilitate local engagement in area-wide planning of the Blue Greenway for the revitalization of the brownfield-impacted community of Southeastern San Francisco. Drawing upon expertise from the Center for Creative Land Recycling (CCLR), EPA funding will also be used to generate an area-wide plan with the community that will address how to remediate and transform 5-10 areas along the Blue Greenway that continue to have negative health and safety impacts for adjacent low-income neighborhoods.

The NPC-led engagement process will give the neighbors an opportunity to express their open space, park and recreation needs.

CCLR (Center for Creative Land Recycling) will be partnering with NPC on this important initiative designed to support a full community process for the development of parks and open space along our long neglected southeastern waterfront. CCLR will bring its expertise in the redevelopment of contaminated land having assisted hundreds of communities across the state with the clean up and revitalization of historically-neglected and environmentally-challenged property.

The area-wide planning process will leverage existing efforts to identify and reduce threats to human health and the environment, and will facili­tate assessment and revitalization of brownfields in the target area by identifying site-specific reuses for them. The plans will integrate site cleanup and reuse into coordinated strategies to lay the foundation for addressing community needs such as economic development, job creation, housing, recreation, and education and health facilities.

RFP for Temporary “Parklets” Now Available

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010


What are parklets?

Parklets are intended to provide space for people to sit and relax and enjoy the city around them,

especially where narrow sidewalks would otherwise preclude such activities. Parklets are public space and must be publicly accessible. Retail businesses, cafés, restaurants, and community benefit districts (CBD’s) may apply for a permit to install a Parklet.

Spearheaded by the Planning Department’s Pavement to Parks Program, parklets offer a unique opportunity to widen a sidewalk, providing public space for people to sit and relax.

While parklets can never replace the lush, green recreation space that our parks give to our city, the provide a means of connecting open spaces in a unique and often neighborhood-focused way.

For any questions or information, e-mail Kit Hodge at kit AT sfgreatstreets DOT org.

Showplace Square Open Space Planning Update

Friday, January 29th, 2010

Showplace SquareNPC Board Member Isabel Wade has participated in the Showplace Square Open Space planning process from April-November of 2009.  Recently, she spoke at the January 28th Planning Commission meeting to highly commend the process and the guidance of City Planning staff, Steve Shotland and Steve Weirtheim.  She indicated to the Commission that it was an exemplary public process that NPC would like to see more of because almost every neighborhood in the city is deficient in one or more types of open space or recreation amenities, but also because the process helped people consider their entire GREEN FRAMEWORK for their neighborhood.

A plan was developed for Showplace Square that, through participant suggestions,  considered green street opportunities as well as where street parks might be, expansion of an existing park, and developing a vacant lot for a park.  The only concern regarding the outcome of this process is that the open space parcels ‘discovered’ for consideration are generally very small and some are not what is considered ‘useable’ open space but rather street greening.  Isabel indicated to the Commission that she is concerned that San Francisco is not getting the parks needed in either changing neighborhoods such as Rincon Hill or Showplace Square and that City Planning needs to ensure that we plan for, and acquire, large spaces and that we determine a way to fund these acquisitions.
