Muni’s #7R Service to Become #7 Local Service

Beginning in August, the Muni #7R Haight/Noriega bus became the #7 Haight/Noriega.

There was no change in frequency of service on the line. All #7 buses will now stop at

three more locations on Haight Street, between Masonic Avenue and Gough Street, that

were previously passed by #7R buses. The SF Municipal Transportation Agency

(SFMTA, or Muni) made this change to simplify service for riders as the #7R was

nearly identical to the #7 and only ran during peak periods in the

peak-demand direction.

 

If you ride Muni during commute hours and live west of Ninth Avenue, the #7X-Noriega

Express may be a more efficient transit option as it makes no stops after Lincoln Way

and Ninth Avenue until reaching downtown. Outbound, the #7XNoriega Express runs

with no stops after Fell and Gough streets, and then begins stopping again in the

Inner Sunset.

 

The SFMTA made these changes to simplify service for riders based on customer

feedback about service on this line. Our office has also received feedback that residents

would like to see the #7 buses run later than 6 p.m. for those commuting home to the

Sunset and we have shared that feedback with the SFMTA. We will keep constituents

informed if changes are made to the line.

 Sunset Community Festival and Autumn Moon Festival

To welcome the fall, there will be several fun and free community festivals coming to the

neighborhood. Please save the dates and join us for one or more of these annual

neighborhood gatherings.

 

This year, the annual Sunset District Autumn Moon Festival will take place on Saturday,

Sept. 16, on the corner parking lot at 22nd Avenue and Irving Street, 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, Chang-O.

In many countries in Asia, the Autumn Moon Festival is widely celebrated and many

interesting activities with unique local features are held. This will be a fun,

family-friendly event where attendees will get a taste of the cultural diversity of the

Sunset District through various performances. For more information, including how to

volunteer, please visit the website at http://sunsetdistrict.wixsite.com/ autumn-moon-

festival or call our office.

 

In its 23rd year, the Sunset Community Festival is a great event for family, friends and

neighbors. The goal of the festival is to bring the Sunset community together for a day of

family fun where we showcase all that our neighborhood has to offer. Stop by anytime

from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. to meet neighbors, eat delicious food and watch spectacular

performances.

 

The festival will be held on Saturday, Sept. 23, at the West Sunset Playground, located at

Ortega Street and 39th Avenue. For the third year, the festival will feature Sunset

Mercantile, a festive pop-up, open air “metropolis.” For more information,

please visit the website at http://sunsetdistrict.wixsite.com/sunsetfestival or

District 4 Youth Council Application Deadline

The deadline for applying for the District 4 Youth Council is Friday, Oct. 6.

The goal of the council is to create opportunities for youth to share their ideas on how to

valuable insights and ideas, and the District 4 Youth Council will shine a light on the

priorities shared by the younger members of our community.

 

Our office will work closely with members of the youth council to ensure their ideas and

priorities are given attention in our work at City Hall, and we will also connect youth

with members of our community who are already engaged in this type of work.

meet the following requirements:

Youth council members will serve one-year terms, which can be renewed annually.
