The Bay Club Gateway, 370 Drumm St., is adding new landscaping along the black fabric fences facing Washington and Drumm streets in order to beautify the area.

Golden Gateway Tenants Association Vice President Bill Hannan took the initiative earlier this year to ask the Bay Club to improve the appearance of the black fencing. As a result, the club is clearing the overgrown ivy from 18 inches down to about three inches along the sidewalk and installing “Marjorie Channon” evergreen shrubs that usually grow to eight to 12 feet in height.

Ford GoBike is expanding bike share in the neighborhood, and the community is invited to provide feedback on the company’s latest round of proposed stations in San Francisco.

Your input is important in helping craft a system that works best for residents, businesses, and visitors across the city. Give your thoughts on individual locations through Ford GoBike’s online survey, which is also available in Spanish and Chinese.

You can view a map of proposed stations. The timeline for installation of these stations is mid-2018, with permitting happening this fall and winter.

Ford GoBike station locations are determined based on a combination of community feedback (public workshops, community meetings, etc), engineering analysis, neighborhood needs, and input from the city of San Francisco. Additionally, when selecting suitable locations, numerous criteria are considered including access to solar power, Americans With Disabilities Act requirements and anticipated demand. You can read more about the outreach process at https://www.fordgobike.com/expansion.
