The San Francisco Board of Supervisors recently reported in both of their October minutes reports that there were several projects that have been completed or are in progress in the Haight Ashbury neighborhood. In particular, removing of graffiti from newsstands was allocated to the news companies. Of the twenty+ newsstand requests, all were fulfilled within a month.
Other improvement projects are coordinated with the Department of Public Works (DPW). Requests and inquiry were made by the Board of Supervisors about the progress over the month of October with removal of graffiti from private property locations throughout Haight Ashbury. Other requests and inquiries were made about metal poles, utility boxes, and other areas where graffiti is rampant.
The final request by the Board of Supervisors to the DPW was that all four bus stops at the corners of Filmore and Haight be repaired. Removing the graffiti and grime was the main priority. However, restoring the canopies still needs to be fulfilled by the DPW. All requests by the Board of Supervisors will be followed up on in the month of November and are expected to be complete by that time.
Complete summaries of these improvements can be found at the SF Board of Supervisors bi-monthly meeting minutes online at their website.
