Why is Toyota littering our neighborhood?

By now anyone walking down Cortland has come across the Want2BSquare posters.

Posters have gone up on shop windows, trash cans, street lights, and anything with a flat surface.

The box headed man holding a bloody knife is brought to you by Toyota's Scion marketing team.

There is a great video of a guy walking down Cortland and being inundated with the annoying posters.

FUF Brings Trees in Bernal

We just finished a great morning of tree planting with the team from FUF, Friends of the Urban Forest. Along with FUF came volunteers from Berkeley's Civil Engineering club as well as Berkeley's RotorAct group. There was also a contingent of Japanese tourists who helped to plant. We put in about thirty tree and wrapped up with a wonderful potluck lunch.

If you are interested in getting trees please contact FUF

Support Bernal at meeting with Chief Fong

SFPD Chief Heather Fong will present her budget proposal for the coming fiscal year to the Police Commission this Wednesday 2/14 at [time to be determined -- either 4:00 or 6:30] in Rm. 400 at City Hall. (Think of it as your Valentine to Bernal Heights)

Building on our very successful community meeting, our emails to the City, and our meeting with Chief Fong, Bernal neighbors need to turn out in force to push for:
  1. A continuation of the beat cop presence in the Alemany Development
  2. Increased staffing for Ingleside--critical to maintaining foot patrols on Cortland and on Mission.
These recent measures are helping combat our crime problems, but they are temporary and will go away if we don't support the Chief in requesting more funding.

Bring your neighbors and friends and show the City that we are organized and actively advocating for Bernal Heights. And if you can, please attend a prep meeting tomorrow, Monday 2/12, at 5:30pm at the Neighborhood Ctr, 515 Cortland.
