As our foggy summer comes to a close, I happily celebrated the first day of school with

visits to each of the public elementary schools in the Richmond District.  Thanks to our

educators, families and students for their enthusiasm in kicking off the new school year!

 

September brings a close to the August legislative recess for the SF Board of Supervisors,

and my office has been busy getting ready for the fall. Here’s what’s happening in our

“hood.”

 

Public safety Town Hall Meeting

In response to community concerns about public safety in the Richmond, my office is

holding a public safety Town Hall Meeting with the SF Police Department’s Chief

William Scott, Capt. Alexa O’Brien of the Richmond Station, and Commander David

Lazar. It will be held at the Richmond Recreation Center, 251 18th Ave., on Thursday,

Sept. 14, from 6-8 p.m.

 

This is an opportunity for Richmond residents to meet the new chief of police

and for him to get to know us! Join us as we hear from police leadership on issues

such as pedestrian safety and citywide policing issues. Bring your questions and

concerns, and share your ideas to improve public safety in District 1.  Translation in

Chinese and Russian will be provided.

 

To RSVP, please call Angelina Yu at (415) 554-7411 or send an e-mail to

Angelina.Yu@sfgov.org.

 

Autumn Moon Festival

I am excited to announce the first Autumn Moon Festival in the district, organized

by my office and the Clement Street Merchants Association, Richmond District

Neighborhood Center, Community Youth Center, and office of Assemblymember

Phil Ting.

 

It will be held on Clement Street, between Fifth and Eighth avenues, on

Saturday, Sept. 23, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

 

This holiday is a time to reflect upon the bounty of the summer harvest, the fullness of

the moon and the myth of the immortal moon goddess. The Autumn Moon Festival is

often considered a “Chinese Thanksgiving” because of its celebration of gratitude and

abundant food – including the popular moon cake.

 

The event will be a fun, family-friendly event where attendees will get a taste of

the cultural diversity of the Richmond.

 

For more information, please contact my aide Angelina Yu.

 

Planning for a senior playground

Through the city budget process, my office set aside funds to engage the elder

community in envisioning a senior-friendly play/exercise area in the district.

Playgrounds for older people feature low-impact exercise equipment designed

to promote flexibility, balance and coordination, along with areas that promote

community.

 

Outdoor senior fitness parks might include stationary bicycles, side-by-side striders,

hand-eye dexterity games, walking paths with ramps and games, like ping pong or

horseshoes.

 

To get involved in the senior playground planning process, please contact

Angelina Yu.

 

Richmond’s affordable housing crisis

The recent SF Planning Department’s  Housing Balance Report paints a

grim picture for the Richmond with regards to housing. Our neighborhood ranks third in

the loss of affordable rental housing through speculation-driven conversions

to condominiums, and we have not been able to make up for this loss through affordable

housing production.

 

Between 2007 and 2016, District 1 has lost 436 affordable units while only building a

total of 170.

 

This is a clear problem for the district, and one I am working to address. I’m meeting

regularly with market-rate and affordable housing developers and the mayor’s office to

review development opportunities in the neighborhood, particularly for affordability

development. But too many of our residents are at risk if housing costs continue to

climb. I am calling for a hearing to understand how housing costs have changed across

neighborhoods during the past 15 years, to inform future housing policy discussions.

 

For more information about this hearing, please contact my aide Nick Pagoulatos at (415)

554-7412 or send an e-mail to Nick.Pagoulatos@sfgov.org.

Please take note of the new garbage cans along Ocean Beach. Many thanks to neighbors
