SF Rec and Park Partners with Board of Supervisors for 2012 Parks Bond Community Meetings

SAN FRANCISCO – San Francisco Recreation and Park Department (RPD) in partnership with San Francisco Board of Supervisors and San Francisco Parks Alliance announced a series of community meetings to discuss the 2012 Parks Bond Program today.  After three months of community outreach with numerous stakeholders, RPD incorporated community feedback and developed the 2012 bond program.

RPD will be discussing the proposed neighborhood parks for 2012 bond inclusion and a list of city wide programs.  Community feedback and participation played a crucial part in the success of the 2008 Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond and RPD is building on that successful framework.

Approved by 71.6 percent of San Francisco voters, the 2008 bond has helped to address the more than $1 billion in capital needs faced by the city’s park system by implementing $185 million in park improvements project at sites all across the city.
