The Excelsior & Outer Mission Neighborhood Strategy continues to develop with the help of over 950 community members who participated in the survey (with Mission Terrace being the 2nd most participatory group). The results of the survey are in.
Members of a Working Group are participating in collaborative meetings with the Planning Department, the San Francisco Municipal Transit Agency, the Department of Public Works, and the Mayor's Office of Housing and Community Development. Together, they are discussing issues important to the neighborhood and strategies to address challenges and take advantage of opportunities.
All working group meetings are open to the public. Upcoming meetings (as of 9/5/2017) include:

Hooray! After years and much neighborhood support, the north-west triangle of Balboa Park, along the upper block of Havelock Street, was approved as a mixed-use off-leash dog-play area. The approval came at the SF Recreation & Park Commissioners Meeting on July 20th, 2017. Special thanks to Abby Nguy for her leadership on this endeavor, Supervisor Safai for his support, and the numerous neighbors who voiced their support and made this happen. Despite record-breathing temperatures, several dog-guardians of Mission Terrace, showed up for a celebration on Friday, September 1, 2017.
Further information on fences, signage, doggie-bag station, etc. will be coming soon. So bring your furry family member and help celebrate!

Sunday, May 7th, 2017 your Mission Terrace neighbors opened their gardens for the first annual Mission Terrace Garden Tour.
We've got a whole lot of green thumbs in our hood; urban homesteaders, drought-tolerant landscapes, glass-filled pathways, labyrinths, succulents, and blooms galore. There was something for everyone, and it was a fantastic way to spend a warm day and get to meet more of the neighbors.
Looking forward to next year's tour!
On Friday, April 14th, 2017 speed bumps are installed on the 900 block of Cayuga, between Ocean and Onondaga. Twenty months after applying for traffic calming and after seeing this single request "fast tracked", is a small measure of success for Mission Terrace. This block is proposed for 200 more units of housing. Thank you, Mark Kress, for leading the effort on this request.
On Wednesday, April 12th, 2017 the Board of Supervisors Public Safety and Neighborhood Services Committee discussed the problems with flooding in San Francisco, and explored flood mitigation plans.
