The Balboa Reservoir Project is a very large proposed development that will impact life for residents in Sunnyside (more here). Housing and park space are planned for the now undeveloped land to the west of City College. The Community Advisory Committee (BRCAC) is an unprecedented new aspect of development in San Francisco–and a vital part of deciding what that project will look like going forward. You can be a part of that process–BRCAC meetings are open to all community members.

The next meeting of the Community Advisory Committee is Monday, February 13, 2016. More about the meeting here. It will be held at City College of San Francisco, Multi-Use Building, Room 140, 55 Phelan Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94112. 6:15pm. To contact Committee Chair Lisa Spinali, email  BalResCACChair@gmail.com.

The process for selecting a developer for the site has begun. Here’s the timeline:

Residents of District 7, which includes Sunnyside,  have the opportunity to propose and/or vote for projects that draw on public funds for projects that particularly benefit our district. This innovative process is called Participatory Budgeting.  D7 Supervisor Norman Yee is leading this effort. Here’s a list of what projects were chosen last year.

In past years both Sunnyside Park and Sunnyside Elementary School projects have been chosen, bestowing tens of thousands of dollars in city money in our neighborhood. What project would you propose?

The process for choosing D7 projects for 2016-17 has begun. The kick-off meeting is Thursday Dec 1st at West Portal Playground Clubhouse (6-7:30 pm), followed by a proposal workshop on Dec 17th (more information here). Here is an application for proposing a project. Questions? Contact Supervisor Yee’s aide, Erica Maybaum erica.maybaum@sfgov.org.

District 7 Newsletter — Fall 2016

Yee-June2016Dear community members,

I wish everyone a happy fall and election season! This is a very important presidential election year and I encourage everyone to vote by or on Election Day, November 8. Here is more information from the SF Dept of Elections on voter registration deadlines, dates and in-person and by-mail voting. Here are the government links to all 25 local ballot measures and 17 state ballot measures.

In particular I’d like to highlight three local measures on the November ballot:

  • Prop E–Street Trees: City to take back responsibility for street tree maintenance
  • Prop I–Dignity Fund: creating dedicated funding for seniors and adults with disabilities
  • Prop L–SFMTA split appointments: establishing more balance and diversity on the SFMTA Board

Included below are brief updates from my office about legislation going through the Board of Supervisors’ legislative process:

As usual included are updates on construction projects and community announcements.

Remember to vote by November 8, Election Day!

Best,

Norman
