News and Events

Since December 2006, we've been meeting with our residents and neighbors for improvement ideas and we plan to continue discussions regularly. Please send us your contact information if you'd like to receive notices of upcoming meetings. Updates will be posted here.

We would like to thank everyone who attended design workshops in 2008. The input you provided is helping us refine and further shape our long-range plans. Please visit, Community Outreach for summaries and presentations from past meetings. Our planners and architects have now taken these ideas and shaped them into more detailed drawings and simulations. We encourage you to join us at a workshop in October for more discussion on what Parkmerced might look like the in the future. Please check back soon for more details on our October workshop.
