Who are we and what are we doing? We are an all-volunteer organization of Dolores Heights neighbors focused on landscape, safety, and land use.
Our Gardening & Safety Committee hosts our monthly “Green Gardens” at 9am on first Saturdays (click here for meeting info.) We clean up one of our public stairways and the adjacent landscape. You can show up and wield a broom, rake, shears or loppers to beautify our neighborhood. We also host block safety groups.
Our Planning & Land Use Committee advocates for balanced development that is consistent with our Special Use District and Dolores Heights Residential Design Guidelines. We educate neighbors on how to engage in and influence proposed project designs. And we take positions and speak out on citywide planning and land use issues facing our neighborhood. The Planning & Land Use Committee meets monthly.
Membership in DHIC is open to all persons owning property or residing within the area approximately bounded by the following four streets: Castro, 18th Street, Dolores Street and 22nd Street. These boundaries include the buildings on both sides of these boundary streets.
