Corbett Heights Upcoming Events

Hi Neighbors -

This coming Sunday, July 12, starting at 11AM we'll be having a cleanup day at the Corbett Slope (300 block of Corbett).  We'll have some snacks, drinks, tools and gloves, but feel free to bring anything you'd like to share, or your favorite tools.  I'd be happy to show you the tentative plans for the new stairway/paths connecting Corbett to Market.
So please stop by to help - or just to check out what we've been up to!

Our next general meeting will be Thursday, July 23rd - starting at 7PM - above the BofA on Castro/18th Sts.  Dennis Herrera, our City Attorney will be there to talk with us.  More info to follow.

And last, we've been asked to give our support for a proposal made by members of Dolores Heights Improvement Club (DHIC).

They felt the need to address a dangerous precedent on Cumberland St. Someone purchased 2 adjacent lots - one is vacant, the other contains a moderately sized single family home. The new owner hopes to demolish the home, and build one 8,000 square foot home over both lots. The block is zoned for one residence per lot. After the proposed merger of these 2 lots, the new double-sized lot will still be zoned for one residence.

In June the Board of Supervisors made it more difficult to merge dwelling units  - to prevent loss of housing. A suggestion to include lot mergers never came up - until now.  If you are a member of CHN, and would like to support this proposal, please let me know.  Here is the entire proposal:
