Hannah will also highlight the design and politics that shaped the built and unbuilt schemes in the competition. Then, GPNHP director Evelyn Rose will follow with a surprising new theory about the origins of the name given to Islais Creek!

More Volunteer Block Captains Needed for Neighborhood Assistance Program
Resilient Diamond Heights (RDH) has introduced the “Neighbor Assistance Program” to help match people who are willing to check in on the wellbeing of neighbors with people needing help. This is especially important for people who are more vulnerable because of disabilities or advanced age who live alone. To ensure safety and privacy, we are asking that each “Block Coordinator” work only with a small geography of a single city block or a single building or floor of an apartment or condo. The assistance provided may be just a simple wellbeing call. RDH is hoping that email/phone lists developed now will also serve to connect people quickly in future emergencies.

If you want details on becoming a Block Coordinator, please contact Betsy Eddy at betsy.eddy@gmail.com
