Just a quick post today. The City of San Francisco is asking for public input on the proposed Balboa Reservoir development site. There is a meeting tonight, Tuesday, May 5th (details here).
My idea: Let’s reuse the best parts of Paris — the parks, narrow streets, and mixed-use buildings. With that pattern, the 16-acre site could fit 1000-1500 new dwelling units.
This is a great spot to promote human-scaled, car-light development. It’s a 10-minute walk to the Balboa Park BART. Downtown is a 10 minute train ride away.
