Historic Study of South Mission Victorians Completed
Please send public comments to extend protection for Victorians in the Liberty Hill Historic District and greater Mission!
The planning department has completed and published their survey of the historic resources in the South Mission. This survey examined every parcel in the area bounded by 20th St, Guerrero St, Potrero Ave and Cesar Chavez St to determine which ones were contributing historic resources. The planning department is proposing to create 13 distinct historic districts and has asked for public comment. There are interactive maps of the proposed districts that allow users to click on specific parcels for details about each address and other information about the survey at http://southmission.sfplanning.org.
The planning department will hold two public meetings: 9/22 from 6-8 pm and 9/25 from 10 am – noon at Cesar Chavez School, 825 Shotwell Street. Please send questions and comments to Matt Weintraub at the Planning Department.
One of the shortcomings of the Liberty-Hill Historic District is that we didn’t go far enough to protect our neighborhood. This new survey may possibly remedy that deficiency by extending the boundaries of the Liberty-Hill district as well as by creating new historic districts. It is very important that everyone submit their comments in support of this survey of historic Victorian buildings to help ensure that they are protected in perpetuity against demolition and redevelopment.
