Do you want to be more involved in your neighbhood?  The Eureka Valley Neighborhood Association (EVNA) is looking for new members for both the Planning and Land Use Committee and the Board of Directors!

Hi EVNA Members,

The EVNA Board of Directors (the Board) focuses on operation and general goals of EVNA including:

  • Protect and enhance the character of the neighborhood, its historic resources and significant topographic features and open space
  • Ensure that growth, development, and public access are compatible with and meet the needs of residents and the business community
  • Protect and improve public health and safety
  • Encourage friendly association among neighbors and businesses
  • Provide an educational forum and community outreach to community partners

The Board meets the second Tuesday of every month from 6:30 to 8:00 pm at the Chase Bank at the corner of 15th and Market Streets. We are looking for people interested in promoting the EVNA mission to “provide a public forum for the people who live, work, and play in the greater Eureka Valley area to discuss common issues and concerns and help develop solutions to improve the our neighborhood.”

The EVNA Planning & Land Use Committee (PLUC)  is looking for people knowledgeable in land use issues and the intricacies of the planning process and those who have a serious interest in learning. The committee discusses residential and commercial projects within Eureka Valley in all stages of the permitting process.  It focuses on ensuring that these projects are compatible with and meet the needs of our residential and business communities.  The committee meets the first Wednesday of every month from 7:00 to 8:30 at the Chase Bank at the corner of 15th, Sanchez and Market Streets. In addition to discussing plans and permits, the committee delves into issues such as affordable housing, historic preservation, protection of green spaces and more.  

If you’re interested in either of these important volunteer opportunities, contact the EVNA president  or come to a meeting as noted above, or come to the next EVNA general membership meeting on Wednesday, September 28th, 7:00pm at Harvey Milk School at 4235 19th Street in San Francisco.
