Parkmerced Vision Plan
(# 1186)
Images Description Credits
The Parkmerced Vision Plan is a pioneering neighborhood revitalization effort. The program transforms a 1950s-era, car-centric neighborhood into a holistic urban ecology through a comprehensive and innovative long-term development progra based on the best-applied principles of environmental sustainability and neighborhood livability. The project will promote these principles by creating a pedestrian-friendly neighborhood that establishes a productive network of open space, applies evolving environmental technologies to reduce energy and water usage, and resolves automobile dependency by realigning public transit. The project will protect existing residents at Parkmerced from displacement and help to address the City’s current shortage of housing for households at all income levels.
