The Hayes Valley Neighborhood – HVNA Board wants to remind you that it supports Proposition B on the November ballot.
Proposition B includes the renovation of Margaret Hayward Playground in our neighborhood at the corner of Laguna and Golden Gate, which HVNA has been working to renovate for many years. Prop B will fund those renovations and ensure the park is clean and safe for the community.
Proposition B, the 2012 Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond on this November’s ballot will help the City tackle over $1 billion in infrastructure needs throughout our vast park and playground network.
You can learn more about Prop B at www.yesforparks.com.
It’s exciting to see Hayes Valley, alive with activity on this beautiful October evening. One day next year (?) it will be great to see SFJAZZ activated…but for now, it is exciting to see the building progress.
From their June meeting, the HVNA Public Safety Committee has put together this Public Safety Bulletin: Families, Children, & Crime. The comprehensive bulletin lists local Western Addition and Hayes Valley resources for crime prevention.
You can find contact information for a variety of agency services, including the Buildings Futures Mentoring Program (YMCA), Dept. Children, Youth & Their Families, Mo’ Magic, and many more.
This is a wonderful community resource. Many thanks to the Public Safety Committee for all their hard work! For more information, please contact them at email@example.com.
As reported on the San Francisco Business Times, the corner of Market Street and Buchanan Street (right across from the Mint and the recycling center) will have a new look in the coming year(s). Read the article below: SF Business Times – Condos Struck by Magic
Friends, neighbors, community members:
The Hayes Valley Voice, brought to you by the Hayes Valley Neighborhood Association, is in need of some help!
Ways to help:
1. Deliver the Voice. If you are interested in walking through the neighborhood and dropping off Voices (or the bi-monthly flyer) at people’s doorsteps for a few blocks of the neighborhood. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Layout the Voice. The file is already set up in Adobe InDesign by a generous graphic designer. You will work with the Editor of the newsletter every other month to layout the Voice. On the off months, you will only need to update the rear business member list that goes on the back of the flyer, with the help of the membership chair. Please email us at email@example.com.
3. Edit the Voice Our editor is moving across the bay (not by choice but by circumstance). We will need someone to take on the role of editor. If you are interested, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

After three months of community outreach with numerous stakeholders, we incorporated your feedback and developed the 2012 San Francisco Recreation and Park bond program. We will be discussing the proposed neighborhood parks for 2012 bond inclusion and our list of city wide programs. Community feedback and participation played a crucial part in the success of the 2008 Clean and Safe Neighborhood Parks Bond and we are building on that successful framework.
Approved by 71.6 percent of San Francisco voters, the 2008 bond has helped to address the more than $1 billion in capital needs faced by the city’s park system by implementing $185 million in park improvements project at sites all across the city.
Co-Hosted by Supervisor Christina Olague (District Five), Supervisor Scott Wiener (District Eight) and the San Francisco Parks Alliance
