HANC and Allies Win City Funding for Panhandle and Buena Vista Park
For the past few months, HANC helped organize a multi-neighborhood organizational push to get Rec and Park funding for long-neglected neighborhood parks. The effort was successful, getting $600,000 in funding over the next two years for rebuilding the pedestrian path along the southern boundary of the Panhandle ($500,000) and a tree maintenance program for Buena Vista Park ($100,000).
HANC, along with Friends of Buena Vista Park, North Panhandle Neighborhood Association and the Haight-Ashbury Merchants Association engaged in a joint effort to secure funding for the neighborhood’s two main parks. Supervisor London Breed's support for the effort was early and enthusiastic.
