Greetings to all Gardeners and Willing Weed Pullers;
Please join us and garden in the Sunnyside Conservatory between 9:00 AM and
noon on Saturday, July 23rd.
If you can’t spend the entire time in the garden, please note…we are
grateful for any time you can spare to help out. The grass continues to grow. Your
efforts are always greatly appreciated.
We will have coffee and something to munch on. Tools and gloves will be
provided. I prefer to bring my own gloves and a tool or two to use. You are
free to go either route. Please do consider wearing a hat and well used
jeans. It is too soon to tell about the weather, but I am hoping for a
decent day. A downpour would cancel our efforts.
Sally Ross for
Friends of Sunnyside Conservatory

Pedestrian Improvement Plans at Diamond Heights Boulevard/
Sussex Street/Elk Street
SFMTA staff will present progress report on long-awaited pedestrian safety plans at this location
Corporate shuttle buses will test the Glen Park BART station as a pick up and drop off location starting July 11, according to a memo circulated to Genentech employees in late June.
Buses longer than 35 feet quit using the street in February of this year when the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency rolled out an amended corporate shuttle plan. The plan allowed longer buses on state-defined arterial streets only. Bosworth is an arterial, but buses need to access it via Diamond Street, which is not.
According to the memo, corporate bus programs would be expected to work together to coordinate bus schedules to avoid overcrowding at the bus stops.
Prior to the prohibition on non-arterial streets, the shuttles had dropped off passengers on Diamond, but now both drop off and pick up will happen on Bosworth, according to the memo.
“This is necessary both to improve the safety of passengers that previously disembarked between parked cars and to ensure we are complying with SFMTA regulations that prohibit the buses from double-parking,” the note said. “Please recognize that in afternoon traffic it may take a few extra minutes to reach the drop-off location on Bosworth.”
