I want to take this opportunity to reach out and thank you for all that you do to make Duboce Triangle a great place to live.
You volunteer countless hours, use precious weekend time, and stay up late to work on projects, paint signs, and cook meals, all in an effort that builds and supports our community.
Just some of the work you do! Leading side
walk garden initiatives on Natoma, Pierce, Carmelita, and Waller, replacing and caring for trees on 14th and 15th Streets, fundraising for Ukraine and McKinley Elementary School, adopting our traffic islands and street gardens on Noe and Sanchez Streets, caring for Duboce Park, participating in environmental clean-ups, and, yes, helping to run a neighborhood association that is supportive of all these efforts... the list goes on. The time and energy you put into making Duboce Triangle the warm, caring, and engaged neighbor- hood that it is, does not go unnoticed and is truly appreciated by all of us who live, work, and play here.
As I’ve walked throughout the neighborhood and talked with many of you, I have seen it in your eyes and in your smiles – the pride you have in the work you do, the causes you support, and the community you build. Community is not just Duboce Triangle, it’s your friendships and the relationships you have with your neighbors, the local merchants, or the people you see walking through the neighborhood every day.
Just last month, 25 neighbors joined our movement and completed an Earth Day clean sweep of the southern side of Duboce Triangle, while on the northern side, neighbors joined together and planted beautiful street gardens, all with the same goal: Keep Duboce Triangle green, clean, and environmentally safe.
Mark your calendars, because in just a few weeks, on Saturday, June 18th our Environmental Protection Impact Committee (EPIC) will host a neighborhood-wide Pride pick-up. We will meet at the corner of Noe St. and Duboce Ave. at 9:30 a.m., and pick up trash from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
When we work together we are stronger, kinder, and more understanding of one another. DTNA needs you, your energy, your understanding, and your efforts. We want to keep building your community; a community committed to one another. More at dtna.org.
