Volunteers are encouraged to apply, especially those with a particular interest in completing research projects related to family housing, early childhood education, Vision Zero, food security and senior housing.

Voting closed — we’ll post results as soon as we get them.
If you haven’t voted yet in Participatory Budgeting, please do it today. These are local projects designed for your neighborhood, by your neighbors (see Sunnyside’s list below)—but they don’t get funded without your vote. http://sfpbd.sfgov.org/district/7/vote. Voting season is open until midnight, Saturday Apr 14. All District 7 residents can vote. (Don’t know if you are D7? See map.)
Four projects were developed by Sunnyside residents, and will have a direct impact on our neighborhood–but only if they get enough votes. We did it last year, we can do it again. Please Vote for Sunnyside! http://sfpbd.sfgov.org/district/7/vote.

The next meeting of the Balboa Reservoir Community Advisory Committee is Monday Apr 9, 6pm, at the CCSF Multi-Use Building. The developer team AvalonBay/BRIDGE will show their plan for the 17-acre site, along with several options for various aspects. Now that the City has approved the Fiscal Feasibility Report, this site plan, if accepted, will begin the environmental review process.
The project site is located west of Phelan Ave and north of Ocean Ave. All residents are welcome at the BRCAC meetings. There is an open public comment period.
