A NEIGHBORHOOD ORGANIZATION SINCE
The Eureka Valley
Recreation Center is a public institution providing activities for
basketball and baseball players, senior meal programs, gay teens, and
dance and martial arts classes. It is due for a major retrofit starting
this winter. Coordinating with EVRC and other agencies in the area is the
task of the Education and Recreation Committee.
Pedestrian safety and quality of life issues converge in front of
Walgreen's on 18th and Castro. Helping to find community solutions to
these problems is the work of the
Public Health and Safety Committee.
Our neighborhood is well-served by Muni's metro, trolleys, and
buses. Recommending improvements and responding to successes is the
task of the
Utilities, Transportation, and Neighborhood Commerce Committee.
Come join us at our next General Membership meeting and even better at our
Committee Meetings to actively take part in preserving, protecting, and
promoting our neighborhood.
-- Lion Barnett, President
Next meeting Thursday, June 21st 7:30PM
Eureka Valley Recreation Center, 100 Collingwood
Much of EVPA's work is now being done at
the meetings of the various committees. Committees receive tasks from the
General Membership as well as the Board to study various issues and report
back to the membership. It was the Planning Committee that researched
Supervisor Daly's pending legislation and reported back to the membership,
which resulted in EVPA voting to oppose this TIC proposal. The Finance
Committee is looking into establishing a budget for the organization and
the potential need to raise dues to pay for projects and expenses. And
Internal Affairs will revisit our By-Laws in order to streamline or update
our policies and procedures.
In addition, some of other Committee work
can be seen in the photos:
warm Sunday, residents and visitors gather at some of our neighborhoods
favorite spots. These people, in front of the Bagdad Cafe on
Market, are potential new members. Outreach to those who live and work in
the neighborhood is the task of the Membership and
