Green Community Benefits Plan

UC Hastings Law has adopted a Green Community Benefits Plan in conjunction with its student housing project at 198 McAllister Street. The purpose of the plan is to reduce the effects of tree removals required by the project. Designed to go beyond mere mitigation, the plan includes creating green infrastructure of benefit to both the school community and the Tenderloin neighborhood. Community engagement will inform the design and implementation of the plan.
