Activism in Urban Planning: The Mission Creek Green Belt and Bike Path
Reception: 1:00pm, Saturday, June 6, 1998
Mission Creek was a navigable stream in the 1800's which flowed roughly along what are now Harrison and Division Streets from the core of the Mission Industrial Zone to Mission Bay. Local artists and activists, led by the Madrina Group housed in Project Artaud, will conduct a tour along the route of the underground river and their proposal to convert an old railroad right-of-way along Mission Creek into a bikeway and greenbelt. The bike and/or walking tour begins at the harbor mouth (7th and Channel) and moves upstream along Division to an early crossing of Mission Creek at Center Street (16th) and Harrison. Installations, kiosks and staged events along the river route will be educational and entertaining. Antics may prevail. Come by bike.
