[Update: “With recycling centers dwindling in SF, one operator plans to bring the people to his business,” September 19, 2014, San Francisco Examiner]
Is this the last we’re going to hear about the recycling center at 10th and Harrison Street?

Especially active, vibrant small businesses that help dented cars look good, replace broken car windows (no shortage of them in SoMa), provide great tasting Mexican food to locals, and employ hard-working people without college degrees.

The Rincon Hill neighborhood has an opportunity to get local bus service again. First, the SFMTA and MUNI need to get information from us (residents, workers, or visitors who would maybe use a bus to travel to and from the waterfront along Folsom or Harrison Streets)!
Also, if you work in the neighborhood (South of Market Street, east of 2nd Street), please consider asking your HR Dept. if the survey and informational website links can be sent around the office because the City would like to gather input from commuters who might be potential users of any new local bus service with stops around Folsom Street and/or Harrison Street east of 2nd Street near the waterfront. Go direct to the survey: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/1718957/Rincon-Hill-Survey

I would also like to thank the city staff that took time out of their evening to come and offer resources and input, including the Mayor’s Office of HOPE Director Bevan Dufty and Kevin Drew from the Department of the Environment. Finally, I’d like to thank the individuals that emailed or called me privately after the meeting and expressed their disappointment with the behavior of some of their neighbors and recommitted themselves to working toward positive solutions that would benefit everyone in the neighborhood. On a personal note, I was deeply appreciative of that, so thank you. Continue reading
