SPUR Meeting - Revisiting San Francisco's Residence Parks

Promised as relief from the nuisances of city life, San Francisco’s residence parks were designed as master planned communities within the city limits. Restrictions limited what could be built in these communities, prohibiting such uses as apartments and businesses to maximize the suburban atmosphere. Ultimately, eight were created: St. Francis Wood, Sea Cliff, Lincoln Manor, West Clay Park, Forest Hill, Balboa Terrace, Ingleside Terraces and Jordan Park. Come hear about their history and legacy.

REMINDER: Muni Metro Open for New Year's Eve,Embarcadero Station Closed for Overnight
Posted by: MarkScardina - 12-29-2015, 05:10 PM - Forum: City Meetings and Events - No Replies

Dear Neighbors, Business Merchants and Muni Customers:
As the city gets ready to ring in the New Year, the Blue Light Emergency Telephone and Radio System Replacement Projects continue to make impressive headway in Muni subway. We are almost there.

To make it easier and quicker for partygoers to travel to and from overnight celebrations at the waterfront, Muni subway will be open for train service until 4 a.m. on New Year’s Eve. To do this, the ongoing Muni subway communications system upgrades in the subway will be suspended. The nightly subway work, which closes the subway at 9:30 p.m. and provides bus substitution service, will resume January 1, 2016. 

Also starting the night of January 1, the Embarcadero Station, which usually remains open for the T Third service, will close for night work to help accelerate the construction schedule. The bus shuttle service currently in place at night between Embarcadero and St. Francis Circle will extend to Folsom Street. After the subway closes, the T Third trains will only operate between Folsom Street and Sunnydale Avenue between 9:30 p.m. and 1:30 a.m. The goal is to complete the subway communications upgrades on January 22 to accommodate the construction of Super Bowl City, which begins January 23.

Since the start of construction on July 31, the two projects have been moving along as planned. The contractor for the blue light telephone replacement is using multiple crews to install cable hangers at various locations in the subway. At the same time, the radio replacement crews are installing the infrastructure for the new telephone system including cable hangers, light fixtures and telephones between West Portal and Embarcadero. Special rail vehicles transport the materials and equipment in the subway.

Every night, underground, construction crews are hard at work to modernize critical communication systems in the Muni Metro subway that will allow us to respond quickly in the event of an emergency. The communications upgrades will bring safer, more reliable service to Muni’s 155,000 daily Metro riders.

By the time they’re done, crews will have installed about 15,000 cable hangers and 15 miles of cable for the new communication systems in the subway.

Thank you for your patience  and understanding as we work to improve your Muni.

To receive more information, please contact SFMTA Public Relations Officers Jay Lu (415.701.4387 or jay.lu@sfmta.com) or Kelley McCoy (415.701.5428 or kelley.mccoy@sfmta.com).

San Francisco's Panama-Pacific Exposition
Posted by: MarkScardina - 12-07-2015, 06:26 PM - Forum: City Meetings and Events - No Replies

Please join us at the Merced Branch Library on Thursday, December 10th at 7:00 p.m. for:

San Francisco's Panama-Pacific Exposition 

In its centennial year, Nancy DeStefanis discusses the "last great world's fair," the Panama Pacific International Exposition of 1915, and displays artifacts from the event.  She also presents a slideshow and a film, “The Phantom City,” which features live footage of the Exposition. Constructed on 635 acres of what is now the Marina District, the Fair demonstrated that San Francisco had recovered from the devastation of the 1906 earthquake and was a center of new ideas and manufacture.
