Have you and your neighbors been wanting to beautify your little corner of the neighborhood? Friends of the Urban Forest has received funding from Supervisor Breed's office to do a sidewalk landscaping project in the Haight/Cole Valley area! That means you can do this project with zero start-up costs! Here's the scoop:
How Does It Work?
FUF is currently looking for "block captains" to help organize proposed area projects. The first step is to start talking with your neighbors and gather interest for sidewalk landscapes. Once you have a set of dedicated neighbors on board, FUF needs a list of contact information for at least 10 interested properties (on your block or your block plus another around the corner, for example). Once this list is provided, the next step is scheduling a community meeting.
What Are The Criteria?
FUF's criteria for choosing its project sites are:
1. Number of properties (around 10 is ideal);
2. Density of properties (logistically, it is better to have all properties on the same block, but there is some flexibility);
3. Potential concrete removal (all properties must want concrete removal for new garden area).
The deadline to submit your list of neighbors is June 15, 2017. Please submit to [email protected].
