Up to code or not?
You tell me.
I’ll vouch for the coyote part of this photo showing the poor critter wandering the early morning Streets of San Francisco, but I won’t vouch for the sign being there IRL.
In either event, this is How We Live Now in urban Frisco, where urban Laguna Honda is Coyote Country:
Now let’s think back a few years, when writer CW Nevius fretted over “dangerous” urban coyotes – this was just a couple years after he moved here from where, Walnut Creek? Concord? One of those. Anyway, since then, how many people have been killed / seriously injured by fighting dogs? A few, at least. But coyotes? None. Perhaps Chuck was fretting over the wrong thing, trying to get the facts to fit his column’s format, IDK.
Hey, should some dog owners should change behavior instead of going crying to Mr. East Bay Everyman?
I’ll tell you, the value of a garage these days in the Greater Western Addition / NoPA is far greater than the value of any battery electric vehicle (BEV) you could imagine.
So that’s why you’ll soon be seeing more of this:

(Now, it’s not widely known, but if you want to buy an electric car like a Nissan Leaf, you need to have your charging area approved first and that means that Nissan tells the local authorities and PG&E that you have an electric car. Anyway, no charging station, no car, I think.)
But there’s nothing stopping you from lending a hand (or a cord) to anybody who needs some juice.
Well, nothing so far.
I don’t think the militant pedestrian groups around town are going to like seeing this kind of sitch, but that’s just a guess.
Will San Francisco make special legislation about sidewalk extension cords, you know, to clear things up?
Put down your corn flakes and brace yourselves, you Marina NIMBYs. ‘Cause it turns out that the America’s Cup, that “Gift From God” Herself, might result in the re-opening of our moribund Fort Mason Rail Tunnel.
Will streetcars end up going all the way to the Presidio’s Main Post? Will they turn the Marina Green into something like Powell Station?
Who knows. Maybe.
OMG, the E!
Click for the horror.
Now they’re talking about just an F-Line extension now, but once that tunnel’s open again, it’ll be Katie Bar The Door, it’ll be Run For The Hills, Ma Barker.
Take it away, SPUR.org:
“1.Build the F-Line extension to Fort Mason. Cup organizers expect 200,000 to amillion visitors per day to the events. To deliver effective public transportation services to the on-shore spectator areas, we must invest in rail. There simply is no way to add enough vehicle volume to accommodate those numbers. The extension of the historic F-line streetcar to Fort Mason would serve the anticipated spectator venues from Crissy Field to Aquatic Park. With support, creative financing, and expedient action, it is entirely possible for the project to be completed in time. For proof, one need only look to Seattle, whose streetcar line went from a policy decision to construction to operation in less than two and a half years. And it covers four times the distance of the proposed San Francisco extension.”
Remember, the F Extension will lead to the E, and that rhymes with T and that stands for trouble, or something.
