It’s tough to see much grass in the part of the Parkside District (or Sunset, whatever you want to call it). Due to lack of space for cars to park (due to planners being unable to anticipate the growth of car use), there’s a strong temptation to pave over front yards. To wit:
“The Board of Supervisors gave initial approval to a legislation introduced by District 11 Supervisor Gerardo Sandoval, who proposed it as a way to address a problem in his district: residents getting rid of gardens and front lawns by paving them over with concrete.”
