Bay to Breakers 2012

A note from our NOPNA neighbors and D5 NAC:

Neighbors,
 
Bay to Breakers is just around the corner. If you can remember back to last year, the Neighborhood Ambassador program was an important component of the holistic approach NOPNA and other neighborhoods along the route (D5 Neighborhood Action Committee) along with the race organizers and sponsors created to take the race back from a few drunken hooligans and make it Fun For Everyone.
 
D5NAC and race organizers have taken the lessons learned from last year and applied them to make some changes to this year’s race. You can hear about some of these changes this Thursday, 3/15/12 at the NOPNA General Meeting from 7-9pm at Oasis Cafe.
 
In the meantime, in order to prepare for race-day activities, we have opened up the website so you can register for the Neighborhood Ambassador Program. Training will take place prior to race-day this year, so go on over and sign up now before you forget.

Green Connections

Green Connections will increase pedestrian and bicycle access to parks, open space and the waterfront, by re-envisioning City streets and paths as ‘green connectors’ that can be built over time. In the first year of the project, the focus will be to map a citywide network. The second year will build on this framework to design green connections in the following six neighborhoods: Bayview-Hunters Point, Chinatown, Potrero Hill, Tenderloin, Visitacion Valley and Western Addition.

Get involved! We will host many public events to engage communities in developing Green Connections. Visit the project web site below for project information and upcoming events. Also, sign up for the Green Connections mailing list to keep receive future e-mail announcements, follow us on Facebook and take our survey!
