Save the date! August 24th to discuss park space near Market Street
|August 11, 2010||Posted by jamie under RHNA||
Please mark your calendar to meet with other Rincon Hill and SoMa waterfront neighbors on the evening of Tuesday, August 24th at 6:30pm. The meeting agenda will be focused on discussing the potential use that we can 1) Fund with fundraising (no cost to the City), 2) Benefit the greatest number of people, and 3) Activate the under-utilized Rec. and Parks space.
Start thinking about whether we as a community can raise $150,000 to build a playground for the 900+ kids in the neighborhood each workday (about 300 residents among those kids, and many kids in daycare or at the Embarcadero YMCA). If anyone has experience getting sponsorships and gifts from major corporations who could maybe help us reach out to Google, Gap, Charles Schwab, PG&E, BlackRock, and other companies nearby, please e-mail Jamie Whitaker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
