A Model Green Street in Dogpatch
The Dogpatch 22nd Street Greening Master Plan is the result of a 2 year effort by GreenTrustSF - Central Waterfront, the Dogpatch community, and interested neighbors to create a plan for improvements to 22nd Street between Pennsylvania Street and Third Street. The Master Plan envisions 22nd Street as a unique corridor that is a central part of the Dogpatch neighborhood and important connector street between Potrero Hill, to Dogpatch and the eastern waterfront, and connects travelers between Third Street, and the Light Rail station, and the 22nd Street Caltrain station.
This Master Plan has been developed through a collaborative, systematic, and contextually sensitive approach that respects the inherent eclecticism of the neighborhood while enhancing its overall character, performance, and appearance. The goal of turning 22nd Street into a model green street is accomplished through the maximization of ecological, safety, and community benefits. The design tools presented in this plan each serve multiple functions and work together as an interdependent network. This Master Plan follows the plan for a network of connected green streets and boulevards, as proposed by the Eastern Neighborhoods Plan for the SF Central Waterfront prepared by the SF Planning Department. By capitalizing on San Francisco’s recent planning initiatives such as Better Streets, Pavement to Parks, Sunday Streets and Street Parklets, the plan accomplishes a range of citywide initiatives. By using the Best Management Practices as defined by The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission, the plan ensures a high level of positive environmental benefit.
