Gene Friend Rec Community Meeting and Concept Design Alternatives

Rec and Park, together with the Trust for Public Land and project architect WRNS Studio, convened community meeting #3 on Thursday, October 1, 2015.  At this meeting, 4 different options for a new rec center were presented and community members had an opportunity to give their input with green dots, post-it notes and discussion with the project team.  A representative from the San Francisco Arts Commission also presented the City’s Public Art Program and how a portion of the construction budget will be allocated to art for the project.
