Neighbors in the Haight Demonstrate Why a Neighborhood Association is Important
|October 27, 2008||Posted by jamie under RHNA||
C.W. Nevius’s article today discusses how the organization of neighbors in the Haight neighborhood turned out in force (about 100 strong) at a Planning Commission meeting last week and were able, as a unified group, to help encourage the approval of a new Whole Foods store development in a spot where an abandoned store sits now. I’m hopeful we won’t need to ban together to help open the doors to entrepreneurs and other businesses to come open stores in our neighborhood. However, there are quite a few other issues that you can look up on www.SeeClickFix.com in our neighborhood that may require the voice of a strong neighborhood association to get fixed by the appropriate City department or private property owner(s). I’m thinking about the dangerous hole in the sidewalk where a tree used to stand and the trash that collects nearby the computer server co-hosting facility on the corner of Spear and Harrison Streets, for example … or the damaged light pole in Rincon Park that sits with two boards clamped together to attempt to keep the thing vertical.
