Title:Creek Daylighting: A Public Outreach Effort
Author(s):Cheng, Paul
Contributor(s):Deal, Brian M.
Subject(s):creek daylighting
public outreach
Geographic Coverage:San Francisco, CA
Abstract:The Glen Park neighborhood of San Francisco is a hub of activity and is also home to Glen Canyon, recognized as one of San Francisco's six "Significant Natural Resource Areas." From the head of the canyon flows Islais Creek, currently one of only two free-flowing creeks remaining in San Francisco. Decades after urbanization resulted in the creek's burial underground, the neighborhood and the city face opportunity to "daylight", or bring back to the surface, Islais Creek. The aim of this report is to aid planning departments in their public outreach effort to explore a potential creek daylighting project in the Glen Park neighborhood.
