If you’re sick of looking at that unused lot in your neighborhood and have a group that wants to turn it into something a little greener, get the skinny on how to convert it into a street park.
Or, if you already have a street park and want to figure out how to make everyone else jealous of yours, this meeting at the end of the month works for you, too.
It starts with an unused piece of land owned by the Department of Public Works and some people in the neighborhood who want to make it prettier.
Then the San Francisco Parks Trust, the DPW and other resources can help steer you in the right direction and give you information about scoring grants.
The SFPT and DPW are holding a joint meeting January 30 to show you how it’s done and provide a tour of successful ones.
The workshop’s at California Academy of the Arts at 1111 Eighth St. at 9:30 a.m., and it’s only for serious Street Park community groups that have RSVPed here.
