Do I have this right? Take a look:
Like I said, I’ve never seen this kind of wake-up call…
Here’s the description:
And here’s the unit, complete with signs telling you to vote for Propositions J & K:
Is this what special parking permits from SFGov are for?
Last year there were hundreds of tents here, and then they went away, and then a handful came back, and then they all had to leave again, about a month or two ago, and now, we have just this one:
That’s the update from yesterday…
(So the Super Bowl L corporate party, which cost us a lot more than initially advertised oh well, plus the fear of a big El Nino (plus the rise of cheap $25 fiberglass-poled tents handed out in a semi-organized effort with assistance from at least one Morning Zoo-type radio station’s van – Choochi in the Morning, or something, led to the huge Tent City of 2015-2016, then media coverage led to a big crackdown, then were no tents at all, then they started coming back, say around July 2016, then they got cleared out again, by the San Francisco Clean Team and assorted DPW trucks and whathaveyou and now the people that first got kicked out of the Embarcadero / Financial, and then from Under the 101, twice, are filtering back north and east from the Mission District – this is my understanding.)
People saw it coming:
These trucks, plus a full-on garbage truck, plus another pickup, plus a police car.
I guess they paint regular trucks white and special CLEAN PATROL trucks green?
It’s kind of amazing how SFGov markets itself sometimes.
Anyway, this was Yet Another Judgment Day Under The Freeway, on Division, September 1, 2016…
That’s a steam grate:
Should Recology be driving and stopping their garbage trucks in the slow lane of inbound Market during the morning drive? Nope. (And the same goes for the street sweepers working on Market in the daytime – I’ve never seen that until this year.)
And are the “beautiful” obsolete “Pedmount” news racks helping here? What do you think. Is the advertising on them “beautiful?”
Anyway, people will see what they want to see…
You see these T-shirts all over these days:
I guess “downtown” is a generic term? ‘Cause I don’t know where Frisco’s downtown is. I know that “uptown” was supposed to be in the Tenderloin, but the attempt to get that new-school appellation to take off failed. Badly.
Anyway, the DST is supposed to “leave the big stuff for [Frisco’s] DPW,” or so I overheard.
I suppose this kind of effort would make area billionaire / longtime Republican Ron Conway happy…
Hey, how much does DST pay people?
