Yerba Buena Walking Tour Part II
Thursday, September 12, 2013 from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
The second round of the "Insider" of Yerba Buena Walking Tour is here! We had Part 1 of the tour in June.
What exactly is the partner relationship between the public and projects in the Yerba Buena neighborhood? What is the most effective way to initiate social change in this great neighborhood?
In a discussion led by Bill Carney, the former Project and Senior Landscape Architect of San Francisco Redevelopment Agency, you will hear the updates such as:
- Overview of YBC project area & development strategy
- Private investments as catalyst for public improvements (Marriot, Metreon)
- Wider SoMa impacts (Transbay, Bloomingdales, 6th St.)
- Connections to the wider urban fabric (Yerba Buena Lane, Market St.) etc.
The Walking Tour series will be concluded with a panel discussion at the California Historical Society on Thursday, October 17th from 6-8 PM.
Meeting Location: Group to meet in front of the Martin Luther King Jr. Waterfall inside of Yerba Buena Gardens
Time: Please arrive at 12:45pm for check-in
Free for Yerba Buena Alliance Members.

PS: Be sure to wear comfortable shoes to participate in this two-hour-tour. We will notify participants in advance in case of the adverse weather conditions. Please note this tour will be filmed for historical purposes.
When & Where
Yerba Buena Alliance
Stretching from 2nd to 5th and Market to Harrison Streets, the Yerba Buena Neighborhood today is one of San Francisco's most dynamic communities. You can't find our concentration of cultural institutions, cutting-edge retail, top-notch hotels, urban green space, world-class convention facilities, fine dining, and residents of all income levels anywhere else. Yerba Buena definitely has something for everyone!
The Yerba Buena Alliance believes stable and vibrant businesses, beautiful and accessible public spaces, mutually-beneficial and lasting relationships, and an engaged community are key to ensuring a high quality of life in San Francisco and the Yerba Buena Neighborhood.
We produce monthly neighborhood meetings as a way to engage and inform the Yerba Buena Community and produce two gallery walks a year, walking tours, convene the cultural institutions through the Culture Cabinet and have an enewsletter which you can join by emailing info(at)yerbabuena dot org.
