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.

    (Editor’s note: this isn’t technically GP, but I’ve always wondered when something was going to happen to that odd dilapidated building across from Day Street Park. I think it used to be a Polish Club or something? Looks like it will be dense housing.)

Nothing from SFMTA Engineering or the SF Police Commission. The Police Commission’s May 17 meeting will be held at James Lick Middle School, 1220 Noe Street, 6 p.m. Agenda scheduled to be posted here.
