URBAN GREENING

MASTER PLAN

ASHLAND CHERRYLAND URBAN GREENING

UPDATES

PROJECT PURPOSE

In 2010, a group of residents interested in addressing community disparities in Ashland/Cherryland pushed for funding to designate Ashland/Cherryland as a

“Green District.”

 

Ashland/Cherryland lacks adequate parks and

open space - with only 1 acre of park

land per 1,000 residents compared to the standard of 10 acres per 1,000 residents.
 

Ashland/Cherryland is actively creating housing and health plans through the Eden Area Livability Initiative process (EALI).

The Urban Greening Master Plan provides an opportunity to integrate greening objectives into all planning efforts.

 

PROJECT TIMELINE

There will be several opportunities for community members of all ages to participate from December 2013 to October 2014.
 

 

Upcoming events and project milestones will be featured on the HERE!

 

 

Currently, we are looking for volunteers who will help lead the neighborhood mapping program. Please call Erick Sanchez at Mandela Marketplace at (510) 433-0993 if you would like to apply for one of these positions
