West Side Refreshment Kiosk selected

West Side Option

West Side Option

The Rec+Parks Commission commissioners unanimously voted to direct staff to pursue the westside kiosk proposal at Coit Tower for environmental review. Two key points were safety and quality of life complaints about the eastside option — and no public opposition to the westside proposal. THDer Jon Golinger said “if the kiosk has to go somewhere,the westside trumps the eastside.” Read coverage in the SF Examiner.

Telegraph Hill Bird Walk

CS5 Edit-20111115G-2642

Saturday, March 28, 8:00 – 10:00 a.m.
Contact: Carlo Arreglo, 415.533.7081, arregloc-at-gmail.com

We’ll look at North Beach and Telegraph Hill in a different way—as birders— in this walk for people of all ages and levels. Beginners are especially welcome! We’ll start at the Coit Tower parking lot and make our way around Telegraph Hill, including, possibly, a descent and ascent of the Greenwich and Filbert Steps. We’ll look for resident and migratory birds while taking in some great views of two stunning bridges.

Meet 8:00 AM at the Coit Tower parking lot. You can park your vehicle here or in street parking if available on the way up to Coit Tower. Note that the 39 bus does NOT run this early. The 30, 45, and 8x buses stop at Washington Square and from there it’s about a four block walk uphill.
