DOLORES PARK — On Saturday, Supervisor Scott Wiener, SF Rec & Park, Recology and Mission Neighborhood Centers, Inc. kicked off the start of increased waste and recycling services at Dolores Park. As every SFian knows, the abundance of visitors that Dolores Park gets on a daily basis results in an increased amount of liter in and around park trash bins. An extra park attendant will be added during peak park visitor hours to monitor and empty trash bins that have reached capacity. The program will also add 386 clean up hours at the park on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays through the summer months and ending in September 2011. [Curbed Inbox]
SAN FRANCISCO — The City will offer free electric vehicle charging at all City-owned charging stations and at SFO until the end of 2013, Mayor Ed Lee's office announced today. The charging stations will be located at 19 City-owned garages, SFO, and at other locations currently under review, including a number of neighborhood branch libraries. "The City's goal is to make it affordable and convenient for all San Francisco residents and visitors to charge their electric vehicles when they are away from their home charging stations," said Mayor Lee.
