San Franciscos Green Mayor Threatens Local Recycling Center With Eviction?
Ten Green Jobs On The Line
5,000 Native Plants Endangered
Anonymous sources in the Mayor's Office, the Department of the Environment , and Recreation and Parks all confirm that the Mayor wants the Haight Ashbury N eighborhood Council (HANC) Recycling and Native Plant Nursery out by the end of his term. The Mayor mistakenly believes this draconian act will reduce illegal s treet activity in the Neighborhood and in Golden Gate Park.
HANC Operations Manager Charlie Lamar disputes the connection.Fewer than o ne in five of our customers sleep outside and more than half come in cars says La mar who has worked there over twenty years. He addedIf you watch the short video petition youll see how our customer base is really quite diverse and representat ive of the City as a whole.
This misguided decision to evict HANC, which founded the Recycling Center in 1974, will leave the ten San Franciscans who work there without a job. HANC p ays a living wage and provides health care. Given the high unemployment rate, ma ny of these workers will be out of a work for a long time and may well end up ho meless.Thousands of San Franciscans who recycle at HANC will be forced to use one
The fate of the Native Plant Nursery and its 5,000 plants remains unclear.
Whether or not it would be incorpor-ated into a new proposedGarden Resource Cen
ter at the HANC site is an open question. The need for such a new project located
so close to the existing Garden for the Environment (HANC is their fiscal agent
) which has similar programs does not seem to be great.
HANC already plans to offer free soil to community gardeners in the near f uture. And its Native Plant Nursery and Garden has been a destination for those interested in habitat restoration and gardening with native plants for years.
