On Wednesday, February 29th everyone in the Dolores Park community will have an opportunity to review the complete park rehabilitation plan and the proposed construction calendar. Please join us at the Mission High School Cafeteria at the corner of 18th St. and Dolores St. anytime between 5:30 and 8:30PM on the evening on of the 29th. The location is universally accessible and refreshments and good park discussion will be plentiful.
The plans that will be on display are the result of a full year of collaborative planning involving hundreds of community members in 6 workshops and over 30 meetings. Since the final workshop in October, the project team has been refining the drawings and descriptions to fully reflect the community’s desires, address technical issues and respond to the comments made by the Civic Design Review Committee of the San Francisco Arts Commission. As a preview of what will be shared at the Open House, we have included a link below to the packet presented to Civic Design Review Committee.
Also available for review at the open house will be the proposed construction calendar. Like many issues in the planning of the park’s rehabilitation, construction phasing requires careful balancing. Many people are interested in seeing the rehabilitation completed soon, but at the same time many people are wary of any significant disruption of use of the park. What is the best balance? Rehabilitating the park section-by-section? Only working in the off-season? Or is it better to do all the work in one stretch to get it done quicker minimizing the time of disruption? There are also many technical considerations regarding the sequencing of construction. The proposed construction calendar that will be on display at the Open House attempts to balance all these considerations.
Please join us at this important event. Please also help pass the word by sharing the attached announcement.
