Forming New Block Groups to Promote Neighborhood Safety

People are talking, posting, & emailing about safety and sanitary issues in our neighborhood.  SFPD reports that car break-ins in our police district are higher than in 2016.  Burglaries are also a big police concern.  Then came the Mission Dolores Park trashfest on April 1 weekend.  No fooling, park-goers enjoyed the sun, food, and beverages including alcohol.  Then they departed leaving behind enough litter to fill 460 trash bags.  Nearby residents reported lots of spillover from the park … litter on their streets and people urinating on stairways.  Then the party seemed to continue when 20th Street residents found a big pile of garbage next to the 20th & Sanchez Street steps early on Wednesday April 5.

Fortunately, 20th Street Block Group neighbors and DHIC leaders quickly requested City services   And District 8 Supervisor Jeff Sheehy helped to get a DPW crew out in the early am. So the City removed the trash by 8:30 that morning.  We urge neighbors to call 311 or download the 311 smartphone app  for clean-up of graffiti & trash and to request other services.

Call 911 for emergencies or 415-553-0123 to request a drive-by of suspicious activities or other non-emergence police services.  Take pictures and share them with info@doloresheights.org and your local neighbor email alias.

Stay tuned for info on forming more block groups in Dolores Heights.  And come to our Spring Gathering on Sat. June 3 for a live conversation with Supervisor Sheehy and your neighbors
