Green Landscape Ordinance and Bicycle Parking
The Green Landscaping Ordinance
The Green Landscaping Ordinance amended the Planning Code and Public Works Code to achieve several environmental and aesthetic goals: using plantings, street trees, and ornamental fencing for screening, particularly parking lots; increasing permeability of front yards and parking lots; and climate appropriate plantings.

Bicycling to work in San Francisco increased 68 percent between 2006 and 2010, and continues to increase. To meet the growing need, the San Francisco Municipal Transit Agency (SFMTA) and the Planning Department seek to provide safe and reliable bicycle parking, supported by Planning Code requirements for bicycle parking in new and renovated commercial buildings, as well as showers and clothes lockers (Planning Code Article 1.5 Section 155.2.) For a map and list of compliant garages in the city, visit the SFMTA website.
San Francisco is habitat for 800,000 people – meeting needs for space to work, play, and learn; for food, water, and air; for community with local flora and fauna. SF Environment provides support for urban agriculture and forestry and green buildings, helping residents and businesses harness environmental opportunities.
