SF Civic Center focus of urgent, coordinated cleanup effort

In San Francisco, checking out a book from the Main Library, attending a Symphony concert or going to City Hall for a marriage license can mean confronting some of the most egregious examples of the city's drug and homelessness problems.

With up to 9,000 units of housing expected to be built within the boundaries of San Francisco’s burgeoning Hub District, which is off-centered around the intersection of Market Street and South Van Ness Avenue, the plan to guide the development of the neighborhood’s “Public Realm” (i.e., all the space between the buildings and towers) has been drafted.

The Draft Public Realm Plan sets forth the vision for how the neighborhood’s streets, alleys and open spaces could be designed, with specific recommendations for which streets, alleys and open spaces should be redesigned and a host of design strategies and examples.

California native trees are drought tolerant, disease resistant, and attract native pollinators and birds.

I can't make it, I have had 3 brain surgeries and 2 strokes. I am in recovery.

But I definitely would like to see more native plants, and I would like to see that horrible crushed granite in front of City Hall taken back to the grass it once was. It is awful. When you walk in it, the dust from it gets on your pants, which only tells me that we are BREATHING it!

Someone must have a relative in the crushed granite business, as it is around most trees now as well.

More places to sit - they ignore the needs of the citizenry in their attempt to take away anything that the homeless can use!

Some temporary "bulb outs" have finally come to 6th and Market (one of the city's most dangerous intersections for pedestrians in terms of collisions).

I wish we could've gotten Friends of the Urban Forest involved with the tree-planting efforts -- this guy looks pretty sad.

So it sounds like the SFMTA is going forward with something of a parklet concept-- guessing trees will be a part of that? But I wonder if trees can solve some of the larger issues with pedestrian safety.
