All ages hard at work on our volunteer morning in Sterling Park, while enjoying a beautiful October day.
San Francisco Needs You!
Join your neighbors on Saturday September 8, as we get swept up with civic pride and all do our part to keep our city clean.
The task is simple: LOVE OUR CITY!
Grab a broom and dustpan, sweep the sidewalk in front of your home or business and pick up litter in your neighborhood.
Together, we can make a meaningful, positive impact.
If you don’t have the tools you need to get the job done, Public Works does! You can get supplies the morning of September 8 during a LOVE OUR CITY event at Sherman School schoolyard (Green @Franklin Street) or Joe DiMaggio Playground.
San Francisco is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and it takes teamwork to keep it looking good. On September 8, we’ll make a community-wide push to improve our neighborhoods – with a goal of keeping the momentum going. Every day.
Join the team. Keep SF clean. LOVE OUR CITY!
“Do you see any “dead trees” or “empty tree wells” on the sidewalks? Would you like to see more trees or small gardens planted in your neighborhood? Tree Planting on Russian Hill is coordinated in cooperation with Friends of The Urban Forest. Trees and gardens are planted at no cost to homeowners.
Homeowners and/or “renters” can apply for new trees, replacement trees, and even small sidewalk gardens to be installed at no cost to homeowners. Applicants are asked to commit to arranging weekly watering of the new plantings until they are established.
37 new trees were planted on Russian Hill in 2018.
It is hoped that there will be another new tree planting in 2019. For questions regarding trees, contact Friends of the Urban Forest (FUF) https://www.fuf.net/ or the SFDPW Urban Forestry division https://www.sfpublicworks.org/trees.
Friends of the Urban Forest (FUF) organized a very successful morning of tree planting on Russian HIll. FUF and lots of our volunteers planted a total of 37 trees in the neighborhood. Trees were planted at no cost to property owners who have pledged to water the trees until they become well established. These trees will all help make our hill look greener and even more attractive. Benefits of street trees have been shown to include increasing property values, calming traffic, and reducing air and water pollution.

RHN gets resiliency training from Daniel Homsey, Director of NEN, in a half day session this July weekend. What would you do in your neighborhood if an earthquake it? Are you prepared? These were the tough questions put forth to the group.
If you see trash, call 311 to report its location or report it online at https://sf311.org/
You can also download the app for the iPhone at the app store.
After receiving many inquiries regarding the possibility of establishing some kind of regular schedule of mechanical street cleaning, the Neighborhood Improvement Committee recommended to the RHN Board of Directors that we conduct an online survey of our members on this issue. Thank you to the 321 of you who responded. A solid 70% favor mechanized street cleaning. We will be meeting with city officials to determine appropriate next steps and will continue to report to you on our progress.
The results have been compiled and can be viewed at RHN Street Cleaning Survey.
