Updates on the Phase 3 Park Coming Soon

Picture1

We want to hear what you want to see in the new park that will be included in Phase 3! Since we cannot hold in-person meetings safely during this time, we are working on a short YouTube video to present drawings of the park and on a paper and digital survey so you can share your feedback.

Resident Parking & Transportation Survey

Digital English HV3 Parking Survey Postcard

We’ve heard your frustrations about parking and transportation at Hunters View — and we want to hear what solutions you want to see at Hunters View. If you are a current Hunters View resident, please take the Parking & Transportation Survey online here (also available in Spanish and Cantonese). You can also pick up and drop off paper surveys at the management offices.

Your input will help us understand what is working and what needs to be fixed. This survey is also a chance for you to ask questions and share ideas. We want to hear it all! Later this year, we will share survey results with you and your neighbors, and we will begin to develop improvements.

This survey will take 10 minutes to complete. If you complete the survey and share your address, you will be entered into a raffle to win a Target or Safeway gift card. You do NOT have to share your address, but if we do not have it, we cannot enter you into the raffle.

JSCo Property Management will not have access to your individual responses and they will not be held against you in any way.

Upcoming 2021 Street Vacation

The JSCo Development Team is working with DPW, MOHCD, HOPE SF and Supervisor Walton’s office to process a street vacation for the old dead-ends of Wills Street, Hare Street, and West Point Road.

This street vacation process transfers temporary ownership of the streets to JSCo so the team can reconfigure the street grid and build the new streets for the Phase 3 affordable housing. The street vacation will take effect in early 2021.

This process will not impact the availability of on-street parking.

Youth Engagement

A core tenet of HOPE SF is that the community must be engaged for neighborhood and public housing transformation efforts to be successful. Youth, who make up nearly 50% of the current Hunters View population, are essential to this effort.

With funding from the Bay Tree Fund and support from the Center for Cities and Schools of UC Berkeley, Hunters View Associates commissioned Dr. Shirl Buss to establish  the Young People’s Think Tank with Malcolm X Academy (a nearby elementary school) for students ages 6-11. Dr. Buss engaged students in the revitalization process by linking their work to the planning for the neighboring Youth Park and then-unbuilt Phase I park, now known as Promontory Park. Volunteers from the San Francisco chapter of the National Organization of Minority Architects assisted with in-class teaching and professional mentorship at Malcolm X Academy.

Hunters View Associates and the Mayor’s Office of Housing also partnered with UC Berkeley’s Center for Cities and Schools to implement the Y-PLAN tool (Youth-Plan, Learn, Act, Now) for high school students at Hunters View. Several HOPE SF Youth Leaders were hired in 2010 to engage in the design and program planning for the Phase I Park and adjacent community space.
