DTNA Launches Fundraising Drive for Historic Survey of Neighborhood
More than a decade ago, the eastern half of our Duboce Triangle neighborhood underwent a historic survey; a result of DTNA's advocacy during the creation of the Market & Octavia Area Plan. However, that survey stopped at Noe St. Now DTNA is kicking off a fundraising effort, hoping to raise the roughly $30,000 cost to complete the historic survey of the western part of our neighborhood, update the existing portion to reflect changes which have occurred since its creation, and product a historic context statement for a potential Duboce Triangle Historic District.
Our neighborhood is threatened by state legislation which would allow demolition of historic homes in order to replace them with large buildings of six stories or more. Gaining recognition for the historic character of our neighborhood on the California Register of Historic Resources is the only way to ensure that its character can be protected for future generations to enjoy.
You will read more about this threat, and DTNA's efforts to protect our neighborhood, in future issues of the Duboce Triangle News. We are accepting donations toward the cost of the survey effort, and would be grateful for your help.
