This year President Yee is partnering with WalkSF  to have a contingency in this year’s Pride parade.  We want to take this opportunity to support our LGBT families and friends, but also want to take the opportunity to raise awareness about Vision Zero and the organizations and groups that are dedicated to improving the safety of our streets.  Our contingency is family friendly so the more the merrier.

Congratulations to the Detroit Steps Project!

Breaking news: The Participatory Budgeting proposal entitled ‘Preparing Sunnyside’s Detroit Steps for Landscaping and Art’ secured 678 votes during the recent voting period, and will receive the full $25,000 funding. This group effort on the part of local residents has been generating a lot of excitement. More about the project here.

Preparing Sunnyside’s Detroit Steps for Landscaping and Art
This project will fund needed preparations for Sunnyside’s Detroit Steps for landscaping and artwork, including the evaluation and repair of the concrete stairway structures on which art will be later affixed and the evaluation and preparation of terracing on the slope for landscaping. These necessary steps will ensure a successful outcome for the next phases of the art and beautification project, which aims to bring visibility to the area, spur small business development, and benefit the entire Monterey Corridor. We envision the Detroit Steps becoming an appealing and inspirational site for walkers and commuters as well as local residents.
