Central Richmond Traffic Safety Open House

 

 

The Central Richmond Traffic Safety Project proposes a neighborhood friendly project to improve safety conditions for people walking, biking, or being dropped off at schools in the Central Richmond neighborhood. Designs proposed by the SFMTA are relatively quick to implement and focus on streets with a history of high injury collisions, and where children and seniors are present.

 

Join me and SFMTA for the central Richmond Traffic Safety Open House which will present final project proposals based on community feedback gathered at the January Town Hall meeting and engineering analysis. Additionally this Open House will provide the community with information on other traffic safety measures in the Central Richmond, including traffic enforcement efforts.

 

Monday, April 15, 2019 from 6:00pm - 8:00pm

Richmond Recreation Center (251 - 18th Avenue)

Cleaner Energy is Coming to San Francisco

 

 

Starting in April, residential electricity customers in San Francisco will be enrolled in CleanPowerSF, a community choice clean energy program operated by the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC). Currently, the energy you receive from PG&E is about 33% renewable. When you are enrolled as a CleanPowerSF Green customer, your home will be powered with at least 40% renewable energy at rates that are competitive with PG&E’s. You’ll

.

The SFPUC has been providing San Francisco with 100% greenhouse gas-free hydroelectric energy for the past 100 years from the Hetch Hetchy Power System. This clean power energizes SF street lights, Muni, schools, City Hall, SFO, the zoo and other civic institutions and facilities. CleanPowerSF is run by the same clean energy experts. The SFPUC also delivers your great-tasting Hetch Hetchy Tap Water and operates the San Francisco Combined Sewer System.

 

CleanPowerSF is building on that tradition of community-based service and intends to reinvest ratepayer funds into the development of new clean energy infrastructure, which will create jobs, localize our energy sources and keep electric rates stable.

Great Blue Herons Return to Stow Lake

 

 

For the 26th year, Great Blue Herons have returned to Stow Lake, and currently occupy six nests. The Great Blues first arrived in 1993 and constructed one nest. Last year, six nests were successful and produced seventeen chicks-the all time record at Stow Lake. To date, 211 chicks have learned to fly at Stow Lake.

 

Starting April 13th from 10am to 1pm, San Francisco Nature Education will conduct its annual free program for the adults and children—Heron Watch. Volunteers equipped with high powered spotting scopes will show the herons and their dinosaur-like chicks, and explain heron behavior.

 

The program continues through Saturday, June 15.
