Since late 2006, we have held over 100 meetings with our residents, neighbors, and other stakeholders to gather input and share our vision for revitalizing Parkmerced for the future. These have ranged from small group briefings to large public workshops, and we look forward to continued discussions throughout the coming year and beyond. Please click here to view past presentations, bulletins and meeting summaries which reflect the information we've been sharing and the feedback we've heard.
How to Make Parkmerced More Sustainable? Survey Results Are In!
Thanks to all who participated in our recent online survey on how to make Parkmerced more sustainable in the future.
Respondents ranked improved transportation as the top improvement desired, noting in particular the need for a shuttle to BART, better transit, and improved transit circulation in and around Parkmerced. Community-serving retail was also noted as important with more than half of respondents ranking coffee shops, restaurants and retail within walking distance as critical and about a third interested in more parks, playgrounds and corner markets. Sustainable development and usable open space and recreational facilities were noted by one quarter of respondents as of most importance, specifically, more efficient use of water and energy including solar power and a new pool and athletic fields ranked highest.
We’ll continue to work with the community to develop Parkmerced’s long-range plan. Stay tuned for information on future meetings and other opportunities to provide us with your input.
