Diamond Heights Blvd. Median Project

The Diamond Heights Blvd. Median Project is inspiring neighbors and friends to replant and maintain the median islands along Diamond Heights Blvd. between Duncan St. and Berkeley Way in San Francisco.The project will be carried out in phases over several years. Design choices will anticipate plant life expectancy and site maintenance requirements for at least the next decade. Preliminary design criteria include:

  • pedestrian/vehicle safety
  • driver visibility
  • pedestrian access to cross the median
  • irrigation, low-water usage
  • long-term maintenance
  • site-specific plant selection
  • return to historical Modernism landscaping style
  • visual appeal/aesthetics

Desired Outcomes
Active residents strengthen a neighborhood. Public displays of cooperation signal an area that’s alert and ready to act. In addition to the aesthetic benefits, the median project will bring neighbors together to form relationships, create unofficial disaster response networks, increase property values, and give residents a chance to build something together and enjoy the neighborhood community.
