In many ways, 2017 has been a difficult year. Our response has been to try to keep our neighborhood informed and encourage our members and neighbors to take positive action.
In January, we heard about a plan to replace 86 rent-controlled units in Kirkham Heights with a new development of 445 units in five buildings up to eight stories high and eight 3-story townhouses. We also heard from City College Trustees who were still struggling with the Accrediting Committee. These both had happy endings, as the Kirkham Heights developer withdrew its application with the Planning Commission in August, and City College has been accredited and offers free tuition.
