Finally, landscaping for Cesar Chavez

It only took 4 years, but finally, it looks as if Cesar Chavez (formerly Army St), will be getting some greening.  The SFMTA board approved the design in Mid December. The whole street has been an eyesore for far too long.  It’s nice to see that it will get cleaned up.  Property values will be helped by this for sure.  Just look at how cool NOPA is now-the greening along Divisadero helped that out.

The plan does call for a reduction in traffic lanes and the loss of about 30 parking spaces.  That seems scary at first, until you look at a few of other streets that have had lanes removed and are actually better utilized, like Valencia St. and 7th Ave. in the Sunset.
