Oh Hey, Join the Neighborhood Association

Did you know the Lower Haight has a neighborhood association? You probably did, even if you didn't.

That's because the Lower Haight Merchants and Neighbors Association (LoHaMNA) is responsible for lots of hot local action, including organizing the Lower Haight Art Walks, commissioning public art, and coordinating fundraising efforts in response to recent fires. And that's just the visible stuff. LoHaMNA also does plenty of behind-the-scenes work to address issues affecting the neighborhood, like transit, crime, and housing. LoHaMNA is currently in the midst of an annual recruitment drive, looking for folks to join its board. Here's what it takes:

  • Be a member in good standing (annual dues are $25)
  • Attend at least 8 monthly meetings per year. Board meetings are held on the second Saturday morning of each month at Cafe International.
  • Join a committee — Art Walk, Communications, Safety, Clean and Green, or Transportation and Land Use
Of course, if you don't think you're ready for a board position but still want to join the association, you can do that too. To join LoHaMNA, just register here. And if you're interested in possibly becoming a board member, email LoHaMNA president Devon Chulick at devon@shopdsf.com.
