Update: Divis Farmers Market Move

On July 30th, the Department of Land Use unanimously approved Supervisor Brown’s legislation to allow the Divisadero Farmers Market to be held at the DMV parking lot.  The legislation moves on to Mayor Breed’s desk and is expected to be signed by August 9th. Thank you to Supervisor Brown and her team for acting quickly to make this move happen. We’ll keep you posted on the move as more details become available.

Movie Night: Recap

Movie night 2019 was a big success and delighted people of all ages. The crowds were not as large as last year’s event but this was most likely due to opposing events happening on the same night as well as a surge of interest immediately following the passing of Robin Williams. The SF Parks Alliance made several key improvements over last year’s event which significantly stepped up the viewing experience for the crowd including a much larger screen, and stronger audio output for the viewers in the back.
 Our key takeaways and suggestions for 2020:
  1. We will request movie night be moved to September/October to allow for warmer weather and an earlier start time.
  2. Increased ADA access and pass through aisles for community members who need it.
  3. An ASNA section for supporting members of ASNA.
Thank you to everyone who came out to support this wonderful community event!

Alamo Square Re-Forestation: On Track

Thanks to the fundraising efforts of ASNA board members in 2016, the Alamo Square reforestation plan is on track and the new trees planted are doing remarkably well. This fall SF Rec and Parks Department will be installing around 30 additional trees (quantity/size to be confirmed) with funds from SFRPD’s own forestation budget. ASNA Board member Lee Stickles has continued to work diligently with SFRPD to document what trees have been planted and plan the next phase scheduled for this fall.
Big thank you to Lee Stickles!
We will update you once the plan is a bit further along!
