Wilson is part owner and manager of the Streamline Cafe and Art Salon, which is located on Taraval Street in the Outer Sunset District. He and fellow owner Dion Garcia both manage the cafe.
The mural, by artist Jeff Canham, was made
possible with financial help – $16,500 – from SF Supervisor Katy Tang’s
office and the assistance of the SF Arts Commission, People of
Parkside/Sunset (POPS) and SF Shines, a program under the city’s
Office of Economic and Workforce Development.
As the Sunset District struggles to fill vacant commercial buildings, some merchants along Taraval Street west of 25th Avenue wonder if the recent removal of about 70 parking spaces on the commercial corridor might also be the final factor that puts them out of business.
Three light-rail train stops and 36 more parking spaces may be permanently removed from
Taraval Street, between 15th and 46th avenues, if the SF Municipal Transportation
Agency’s (SFMTA) board of directors approves a final plan for the L-Taraval streetcar line
at its Dec. 5 meeting.
Yick took command of Taraval Station from Capt. Denise Flaherty, who was transferred
to an administrative position at the SF Police Academy.
