In moments of disaster, when we as civilians can run from danger, these brave first-responders must run toward it in order to protect the public. Supervisor Catherine Stefani and I had the opportunity to recognize the agencies--and over 400 first-responders and staff--that were activated to the scene of the terrifying gas explosion at Parker & Geary on February 6th. This was truly an unprecedented situation in our neighborhood. It was thanks to the quick, collaborative and professional inter-agency response to the crisis that the situation was able to get under control; we are so fortunate that there were no injuries. I want to express my deep respect for the work our first-responders do on a daily basis.

The 14th Annual Poems Under the Dome

 

 

Poems Under the Dome invites you to celebrate National Poetry Month on April 18, 2019! Read your favorite poem or perform one of your own at San Francisco’s largest open mic poetry event inside City Hall. This FREE all-ages event runs from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. in the North Light Court. Visit their website for details.

 

This unusual opportunity to read poetry in such a unique setting always proves to be popular, and on the day of the reading each of the performance slots will be apportioned by drawing names from our magical hat, and limited to one poem for each reader. Please visit their website for complete participation details.

 

Poems Under the Dome started fourteen years ago when the celebrated counter-cultural icon Diamond Dave Whitaker saw the dome of City Hall glittering in the sun, and exclaimed, "What a great place for poetry!" The incredible support of the Mayor’s Office, the Board of Supervisors, the San Francisco Public Library, and many local sponsors make it possible for this community event to celebrate poetry for the fourteenth year in the most inclusive, exclusively San Francisco way. Come join us at Poems Under the Dome!

 

 

Baker Beach Green Streets Update from PUC

 

 

The SFPUC’s Sewer System Improvement Program is a generational investment to upgrade and modernize our sewer system to ensure we can continue to protect our community and our environment. In addition to upgrading our treatment plants and sewer system pipes and pump stations, we are also building “green infrastructure” across the City. Green infrastructure, such as rain gardens and permeable pavement, harnesses the power of nature to collect and clean stormwater runoff when it rains, thereby reducing the strain on our aging sewer system. Green infrastructure has the added benefit of beautifying neighborhoods and often provides bicycle and pedestrian safety features.

 

In February, construction began on the Baker Beach Green Streets Project. This project is located along El Camino Del Mar between the Legion of Honor and the Lands End Trailhead, on Sea Cliff Avenue from 26th to 25th avenues, and on GGNRA park land at the California Coastal Trail at 25th Avenue North. The project’s rain gardens and permeable pavement will manage approximately 2.6 million gallons of stormwater per year, improve urban habitat, and directly benefit the water quality at Baker Beach through the reduction of combined sewer discharges which can occur during heavy rains. The project also includes traffic calming and bicycle/pedestrian safety components.

 

To provide for public and worker safety, the project will involve the following roadway and parking changes:

  • El Camino Del Mar between 32nd Avenue and Legion of Honor will be closed to vehicle traffic from 8:00 am –5:00 pm, Monday - Friday.
  • Vehicles can access Legion of Honor Museum via Legion of Honor Drive at 34th Avenue and Clement Street.
  • Pedestrian and bicycle access along El Camino del Mar in Lincoln Park will be maintained during construction.
  • The California Coastal Trail access to Baker Beach at 25th Avenue North will be temporarily closed during construction; alternative entries will remain open.
  • Lands End Trail will remain open during construction.

 

Construction on this project is expected to be complete in summer 2020. For more information, visit www.sfwater.org/bakerbeachgreenstreet or email ssip@sfwater.org to sign-up for project updates. We also encourage you to learn more about green infrastructure (www.sfwater.org/greeninfrastructure) and our amazing San Francisco watersheds (www.sfwater.org/watershed).

Dino Days at the Academy of Sciences

 

 

This spring, a special exhibit and experience awaits! From March 22-May 5 Dino Days are coming to the Academy. Visitors to the California Academy of Sciences can share a fascinating encounter with ancient dinosaurs that ruled the Earth some 75-66 million years ago in the Late Cretaceous. Outside in the East Garden, see, hear, and walk among realistic life-size dinosaur models that move and roar, and learn how these massive reptiles adapted for life on land. More Dino Days themed scientific fun is also occurring throughout the museum, and you can learn more here
