Pavement to Parks Sees Progress in San Francisco

The city of San Francisco has barricaded two new large swatches of land to be used as part of its Pavement to Parks projects, and is enjoying a flood of support from residents, businesses, politicians, and local educational institutions.

"At the Lower Potrero plaza site, the major institutional presence, the California College of the Arts, is also very excited about the plaza, and has plans to use it for outdoor classroom space. Some space in the plaza will also be reserved for students to exhibit their sculpture work on a rotating basis. Axis Cafe and Wolfe Cafe, which both front onto the site, have also been strongly supportive throughout the process."
