San Pedro Urban Greening Project

The San Pedro Urban Greening project made it rounds presenting the city’s effort to create green pathways at the May 19 Coastal San Pedro Neighborhood Council meeting.

The pathways link  the community’s  public assets such as the waterfront promenade, historic monuments downtown shopping and entertainment, and San Pedro’s parks such as Point Fermin and Leland parks.

According to the project website, www.witzelsucht.org, the greening of San Pedro’s connections could take the form of landscaped sidewalks , preferred bicycle routes, walking and running trails, highly functional public transit, sustainable  storm water paths or passive  natural greenways.

The purpose of these types of connections is to encourage people to walk or bike to their destinations, expand the urban forest and its associated benefits, heighten nature consciousness, and boost community health.
