SFPA Executive DIrector Matt O'Grady appears on Comcast Newsmakers:
The San Francisco Clean and Safe Neighborhood Park Bond focuses on improving existing facilities that are worn out from years of use, provides urgently needed seismic improvements that will make recreation facilities and playground equipment safer for everyone, constructs new waterfront parks and provides for shoreline restoration.
The bond is focused on improving playgrounds, pools, playfields, trails, tree planting, and ADA improvements, nature restoration, environmental remediation and park development along the waterfront.
This measure is an important component of the City’s Ten Year Capital Plan to provide residents in every neighborhood access to safe, clean and well-maintained parks and hiking trails, as well as seismically safe recreation centers and playground equipment.
