Didn’t make it to the entire meeting of the Haight Ashbury Neighborhood Council yesterday but everything seemed pretty copacetic from what I could see. A representative from Whole Foods made a presentation about their proposed store at 690 Stanyan. Then came the Q and A:
Will they have organic food? Yes. Will they have stuff on sale sometimes? Yes. That’s how it went.
Attention developers – this is the kind of get-together you need to hold before you can begin developing in San Francisco. Paying thousands of dollars a year to nearby community groups, as Sutro Tower, Inc. does, might also help but outreach meetings like these are mandatory. Just saying.
The next stop is a rubber stamp from the Planning Commission on January 28th. Then you can look forward to having a place to shop for Thanksgiving in Autumn.
