When looking at information from the San Francisco Police Department about crime in the Parnassus neighborhood, you can see that crime incidents are lower in the month of October 2010 in comparison to September 2010. However, the crimes committed in October involved assault, car theft, and graffiti vandalism.
Could it be time for a Parnassus neighborhood association? There are certainly plenty of concerns that could be addressed in an effectively sponsored neighborhood organization. Many local neighborhood organizations in San Francisco have been created in order to accept fiscal sponsorship available by applying online to the SF Parks Trust.
A list of local neighborhood associations active in San Francisco can be found at the coalition for San Francisco Neighborhood Associations. An informative guide to San Francisco neighborhood associations is provided by the SF Bay Window to help neighborhoods, like Parnassus, combat crime and improve their neighborhoods.
