New housing construction is blazing through the city’s eastern side, but not the west. Why? Residents say existing public transit is too poor to accommodate denser housing, which might also disrupt the neighborhood’s character. But minor tweaks to zoning regulations could add thousands of new apartments, and many would be priced below the market rate.

A swath of ground at the western end of Golden Gate Park has stirred debate among soccer players, neighborhood residents, astronomers and environmentalists. The disputed turf is the Beach Chalet Soccer Fields. A plan to replace the grass surface with artificial turf has been put on hold by the Recreation and Park Commission which has ordered an environmental impact report on the project.
The Richmond and Sunset districts are the largest neighborhoods in San Francisco. They sit side by side and mirror each other through Golden Gate Park, butting up against the city’s beachfront. Hidden within a vast grid of residential space are areas where one can only trek to or be aware of if driven to. Or if a Muni line transects it.
