Bayshore Blvd Economic Action Plan Meeting NEXT TUESDAY

Next Tuesday, June 22nd, the Bayview and Bernal Heights communities will convene at 6pm at the Iron Workers Local 377 building on 570 Barnevald Ave (@ Industrial off of Bayshore) to discuss future plans for Bayshore Boulevard. This is the second in a series of three meetings on the issue of the redevelopment of Bayshore and, the city tells us, the most important of the three meetings.

As a result, the Bayview Merchants’ Association’s monthly meeting will not convene as usual and will instead will be replaced by this meeting, so as to have maximum representation from the Bayview community.  This is the BMA’s chance to have our voice heard as it pertains to the redevelopment of Bayshore Boulevard and the economic opportunities associated with this redevelopment project.

Please see the flier below for details and invite your family, friends and neighbors.  We look forward to seeing you there!
