Bringing Homes to Balboa Reservoir

12:30 p.m. | Thursday, May 31, 2018
Located on a 17-acre parcel close to a BART and Muni Metro station, City College and other amenities, the Balboa Reservoir is an important site for new mixed-income housing in San Francisco. As part of the city’s Public Land for Housing program, a development team was recently selected to create up to 1,100 homes, a 2-acre central park and several mini-parks, childcare and more on the site. Join us to hear about the project’s vision, timeline and the next steps in the process.

SFMTA: Yet more pedestrian safety upgrades for Sunnyside streets

SFMTA sends this update on how they are implementing pedestrian safety improvements in Sunnyside, in part as a result of our Participating Budgeting grant from last year, but also due to the increased attention Monterey Blvd is getting since being identified as a High-Injury Corridor last year. Images added by SNA for illustration.

It’s time for an update on the progress of the Sunnyside area traffic and safety improvements were listed in the participatory budget application.

  • The feedback on daylighting of intersections on Monterey Blvd, Hearst Street and Congo Street were mostly supportive of some parking loss to increasing pedestrian safety, so we are moving forward with this plan.
    daylighting
    Daylighting increases visibility. Left, without; right, with.

    Work orders should be sent out in the next week or two with implementation within the next month.

  • We do not recommend stop signs at Gennessee/Hearst and Congo/Mangels. Additional red zones as part of the daylighting will be installed. Continental crosswalks will be installed at Gennessee/Hearst.

About Healthy Kids Day
School’s out and it’s time to relax, decompress and have fun with friends. Summer is the time for kids to get up, get out and grow. But for some kids, exposure to activities that stimulate the body and mind ends with the school year. In fact, research shows that kids are prone to gain more weight and fall behind in studies.   Continue reading “This Saturday: Healthy Kids Day at Sunnyside Elementary School”
