Mayor Newsom symbolically signed into law San Francisco’s Green Landscaping Ordinance last week on Earth Day. And the Planning Department published a full Guide.
The goals of the ordinance once again: “Healthier and more plentiful plantings through screening, parking lot, and street tree controls; Increased permeability through front yard and parking lot controls; Encourage responsible water use through increasing “climate appropriate” plantings; and Improved screening by creating an ornamental fencing requirement and requiring screening for newly defined “vehicle use areas.”
