The newCORBETT HEIGHTS NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION (CHNA) will meet tomorrow, MONDAY, JULY 15TH (details below).
I founded the prior organization , Corbett Heights Neighbors (CHN), in 2004, served as president for 15 years, investigated and reported neighborhood-relevant matters, organized neighborhood responses to many challenges, and raised over $15,000 for our neighborhood parks.
I recently left CHN because of profound disagreements with several of its board members: I considered several of their decisions to be inappropriate to the needs of and fiscally imprudent for the neighborhood. It became so difficult to work with the board that, in my assessment, had become dysfunctional.
After hard thought I decided it best to leave and start over, focusing on the matters that I do best. So, along with several neighbors I have started the newCORBETT HEIGHTS NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION which will focus on:
preventing speculative development while encouraging housing that is sensitive to our neighborhood;
Improving our many green spaces;
conducting interesting and educational meetings;
and representing Corbett Heights in City Hall.
Most neighborhoods are served by more than one organization. You are certainly free to join either, both or neither.
If you've attended meetings I've led in the past, you can expect a continuation of the same interesting guests and informative discussions at our meeting TOMORROW NIGHT:
MONDAY, JULY 15, 2019, 7:00 PM CASTRO COMMUNITY MEETING ROOM 501 CASTRO STREET – 2ND FLOOR (Thru the BofA doors, take stairs or elevator on right)
Guests will include Supervisor Rafael Mandelman, Former SF Police Commissioner Suzy Loftus, campaigning for SF District Attorney, and we'll be discussing several development projects in Corbett Heights and explaining some recent legislation coming out of Sacramento.
I look forward to seeing you tomorrow night,
P.S.: You may have read allegations made by the board of the prior organization (CHN). There are, of course, two sides to every story. I am happy to meet with anyone to address questions, but do not wish to engage in mudslinging.
