ASNA General Meeting #1

Our first general membership meeting of 2019 will be held at the beautiful and historic Archbishop’s Mansion at 1000 Fulton street. To begin the meeting, we’ll have the pleasure of welcoming our special guest, Supervisor Vallie Brown. Vallie founded the Lower Haight Neighborhood Association and also worked with merchants to form the Lower Haight Merchants Association. Through these organizations, Vallie led successful efforts to clean commercial corridors and bring trees and green spaces to the neighborhood. Before becoming Supervisor, Vallie worked in the Office of Economic and Workforce Development with a focus on identifying housing opportunities in District 5. We look forward to welcoming Vallie to our meeting to converse with our members.

During this meeting we will also vote in our 2019 Board of Directors and Officers.  We are excited to announce the 2019 ASNA Board of Directors slate:

  • We asked for new trash cans in the park
  • We also asked for the park benches to be restored
  • We funded and completed the restoration of the Ida B Wells school mural on Fell Street
  • We beat Patriot Prayer’s attempt to use our park as a background for their rally
  • Annual Flea Market and Park Greening Days
