The development team began early discussions with community leaders and neighborhood groups in June 2015 to ensure that the final proposal reflects the community’s vision for this prominent site – the nexus of the Divisadero and Lower Haight corridors. We held our official Pre-Application meeting on October 11, 2017. You can view the presentation here.

About The Artists
If you enjoy the art on the top of our landing page, here is some info about the artists:
Shenandoah Smith created this mural in 2007 together with her neighbors as a fun community building project. The purpose of the mural and its characters, Jiffy Pop and Jiffy Pie, are happy little cherubs bearing fresh veggies and water. They are designed to convey happiness and imagination. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of California, Davis, and a master’s in painting and drawing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
The Artist duo known as Sugabus Media is a couple of friends who met at a community art studio in SF in 2013 and struck out together to paint the city not just red but every color in the rainbow! They are best known for their Murals at the SF Transbay Terminal, The IAMA, and of course the garage door on the Whole Foods at Haight and Filmore. They can always be found through Sugabus.com.
