City Agency Hearings

Interdepartmental Staff Committee on Traffic and Transportation for Temporary Street Closures, also known as ISCOTT, meets Thursday, May 25, 9 a.m., One South Van Ness Avenue, room 7080. See agenda here.

  • Temporary Street Closure
    Laidley between Harper and Fairmont
    Tuesday, July 4, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
    Neighborhood Block Party


I see nothing of interest in the Planning Commission’s supporting documents for the June 1 meeting (agendas don’t ever appear to be ready on Fridays) and nothing at the Board of Supes or any of its various subcommittees that is of neighborhood-specific interest (plenty of interest, though!). The Police Commission’s May 24 and May 31 meetings are cancelled, and the SFMTA board meeting on May 23 appears to be cancelled.

Nearby: There will be a Balboa Park Station Community Advisory Committee meeting on Tuesday, May 23, from 6 to 8 p.m., in the City College Multi-Use Building, Room 140, first floor. You can see the agenda here.

“Breaking” News: Water Main on Miguel Street

Photos by Bonnee Waldstein

The lovely dry weather we’ve been experiencing over the last several days contrasted with a puzzling sight — muddy water cascading down and along several blocks of Glen Park Wednesday evening.

Following the brown flow to its source led to Miguel Street, near the corner of Bemis Street.  A water main had broken and the incident was called in at around 3 P.M., according to S.F. Water Department crews on the scene.  They arrived an hour later and anticipated it would be capped by 8 P.M. or so.

Water service was affected along the block of Miguel Street between Bemis and Laidley Streets.  One worker said that either block east or west on Laidley might have also been affected, although he wasn’t sure. Since the source was at a high point in the neighborhood, the water flowed and meandered around several blocks in the area.

The broken main was a cast iron pipe, estimated to be around 100 years old.

The crew went about its business in a cheerful manner, confident that things would be under control soon and, hopefully, without undue distress to those affected.
