Once Again, the “Respect The Neighborhood” Millionaire Homeowners of the Western Addition Get It Wrong: “POST NO SIGNS…”Friday, March 13th, 2015
Here you go, a RESPECT THE NEIGHBORHOOD notice in the Western Addition.
This isn’t a named part of the Western Addition I don’t think – it’s a bit east of the NoPA and the Alamo Square, but the NIMBY mentality is just the same as in those microhoods of the WA.
Legally, this is WRONG WRONG WRONG:
“The public may post information on some utility poles if the postings follow regulations outlined in Article 5.6 of the Public Works Code. The law was adopted to ensure that flyers posted on public property do not contribute to litter or blight. Illegal postings in the public right of way may be removed by DPW’s Bureau of Street Environmental Services and are subject to fines from $100 to $500. Call 311 to report.
Signs are defined as any card, decoration, poster, campaign sign, or any object containing or bearing writing that is affixed, posted or fastened to a utility or light pole that is permanently attached to the street or sidewalk. Signs do not include handbills, banners or A-Frame boards. Bulletin boards designed for neighborhood postings are exempt from this regulation.
Signs attached to buildings and on private property are regulated by Part II Chapter I of the Building Code and violationsshould be reported to the Department of City Planning’s Code Enforcement or call 311 to report.
Tips for Legally Posting Signs on Public Property
To legally place a sign on a utility pole, it must:
Be less than 11 inches in height
No higher than 12 feet from the ground
Conform to the shape of the pole
Be attached with tape or other non-adhesive material such as twine, string or other non-metal banding material
Include a legible posting date in the lower right hand corner
Be removed after 10 days, if the sign is promoting a date specific event
Be removed within 70 days of the posting date
Not be installed on historic street light poles*, traffic signal poles or traffic directional sign poles.
* Historic street light poles are on these streets:
Market Street from 1 Market to 2490 Market
Mission Street from 16th Street to 24th Street
Grant Avenue from Bush Street to Broadway Street
The Embarcadero from King Street to Jefferson Street
Lamp Posts on Fisherman’s Wharf from Hyde to Powell
Howard Street from 3rd Street to 4th Street
Lamp Posts within Union Square
Mason Street from Market to Sutter
Sutter Street from Mason to Kearny
Kearny Street from Bush to Market”
This really stands out to me, perhaps it does to you as well:
Of course it’s the giant cross atop Hill Davidson
Now I’ll ask you, does crime pay? Or did it pay back in aught-seven, when metal “recyclers” stole the hundred-something pound bronze plaque up there to sell for hundred-something dollars? IDK.
Anyway, some people are still mad how the cross and all that land up there got sold for just $26K in a sweetheart deal, but byegones.
I never understood how SFGov could have a cross up there when I first moved to town, but now it all seems kosher…
IDK. I’d need somebody to spell out all the rules.
Anyway, this skateboarder was prolly a tad too aggressive to be in compliance with Frisco’s rules, whatever they are…
Here are the rules to the game:
Dude was about a quarter mile away from the beaches of northwest Frisco.
IMO, this fellow (who was, granted, west of the Golden Gate) was in San Francisco Bay. But the rules for dungeness crab trapping seem to indicate that he was _outside_ of SF Bay. Ergo, this hobby is A-OK.
News to me…
Finally, the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition Acknowledges that Pedestrians Don’t “ALWAYS” Have the Right of WayWednesday, September 24th, 2014
Well, this is refreshing, this new bit from the SFBC.
You see, they used to go around telling peds that peds “always” have the right of way.*
But, the always is now gone from their new materials.
Do you think the SFBC learned something from this tiny WordPress blog?
To review, telling peds they always have the right of way is always the wrong thing to do.
*That was all the way back in 2012, except now this old SFBC posting is down the memory hole, lost forever. Also lost forever are the SFBC’s tax forms, which used to be posted but now are hidden away, oh well.
