[UPDATE: Due to scheduling conflicts, our program has changed. Instead of the announced program, we will feature Shahid Buttar, director of grassroots advocacy for the Electronic Freedom Frontier, followed by Dr. Anita Barzman and Dr. Nina Soares of Health Right 360, who will provide updates on the Haight Ashbury Free Clinic. Rosie Dilger, Ratepayer Advocate from the Department of Public Works will make an announcement about a proposed Recology rate change and provide an opportunity for public input.]
We are in important and somewhat dire times. Despite our local government officials' positions on the Trump administration, frequently opposing and taking strong stands, San Francisco residents still will be affected by many of the antics of the man-in-charge with the support of his robust Republican Congress.
Many questions, thoughts and feelings are still undetermined and unsettled surrounding the introduction of uncomfortable and unacceptable executive orders coming from the commander-in-chief. We need some confidence about our near future and answers to our questions . . . like what’s going to happen next month?
By Richard Ivanhoe, HANC Board Member (Based on a report to the HANC Board from Calvin Welch, sitting member of the Kezar Stadium Advisory Committee)
The committee was surprised to learn that the Kezar Triangle will be used for a “beer garden” (beer and wine) starting two hours before each game. The area will be open to the public—no game ticket required. The area will be approximately 5,000 square feet, with no seating, just “standing tables.” Alcohol will not be allowed to be taken out or brought into the area. It is unclear when the “beer garden” will close—presumably when the game starts.

Architect Michael Harris has submitted preliminary plans to the city for a four-story building to replace the parking lot behind Cha Cha Cha restaurant at 1801 Haight Street. The proposal includes 440 sq. ft. of retail space on the ground floor fronting Shrader St, with seven apartments totaling 5,860 sq. ft. on the three floors above. There would also be a roof deck for residents.
