    Hi Juan, thanks for your thoughts!

    While this project won’t be cheap, the shared-use facility will benefit the public and promises to become a beautiful symbol of how green infrastructure promotes better stewardship of San Francisco’s resources.

    While people may argue that these types of projects serve nothing more than money sinks, there are so many advantages to them. Firstly, you’re making jobs, even if they’re temporary. One of the biggest advantages of this project is that it aims for a more natural area, allowing the local wildlife to regain some habitats. The area is also being developed allowing the community a place to come together and strengthen social ties. All in all a great project. Thanks for writing the article!
