San Francisco park bond funding: an equity mapping & analysis
This research project examines how the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department
allocated the 2008 and 2012 Neighborhood Park Bond funds among 214 potential park
sites, using an environmental justice perspective to evaluate the distribution in
relationship to household median income, number of youth, and the race/ethnicity of
people living within a quarter mile of each park. Additionally, this research reviews the
selection process and criteria for funding decisions.
