City Agency Hearings + Sheehy Legislation

The Assessment Appeals Board meets Monday, October 16, through Thursday, October 19, 9:30 a.m. in City Hall, room 406. See full agenda here.

I’m throwing this in because I think it’s worth noting that Comcast is trying to get its tax bill reduced by claiming devalued assets.


The Board of Supervisors meets Tuesday, October 17, 2 p.m. in City Hall, room 250. See full agenda here. Nothing to report for Glen Park specifically, but it looks like some members are trying to prohibit robot delivery services? See item 29 below in Sheehy legislation. (He dissented in committee.)


The Recreation and Parks Commission is meeting Thursday, October 19, 10 a.m. in City Hall, room 416. I see no GP-related items because there is no agenda published less than a week ahead of the meeting. (!) You might want to check this website later.


GP Bart crime:

A person cited for fare evasion (Andrew Collins, 34, Missisippi) was arrested for a no bail warrant Wednesday, October 11, at 9:27 a.m.

Native Plant Sale

23rd Annual Native Plant Sale

Brought to you by the Yerba Buena chapter of the California Native Plant Society

October 21st, 1-5 pm
Miraloma Park Clubhouse
350 O’Shaughnessy Blvd
San Francisco, CA

 

To take advantage of the winter rains, fall is the ideal time for planting. Growing locally native plants in your garden is an important way to:

§  Attract pollinators, including native bees, butterflies, moths, and birds–for your pleasure and their benefit
§  Provide for endangered species (such as by growing host and nectar plants for the Green Hairstreak butterfly)
§  Enhance corridors for native wildlife
§  Use less water (thereby less energy pumping that water)
§  Save money on utility bills
§  Reduce the use of fertilizers and pesticides
§  Have a beautiful, colorful, lively garden
§  Inspire your neighbors to do the same!
