I use the term hipster with reverence and respect.

You said you would attend. You did. I remember walking the park and everyone I met said they’d be there.

The purpose of the community meeting was to bring all the diverse groups of Dolores Park together to talk about enforcement of park policies. Unfortunately, it seems that the younger generation, those most negatively impacted by the new enforcement of the laws, were MIA. I counted about 10. (Don’t shoot me for profiling. It was the only option.)

Should I, and others, take your lack of attendance as a sign that they don’t care? That it’s okay for police to ticket you from drinking or smoking? To ruin the park ambiance with motorcycle cops? It’s hard to say without hearing from any of you. If community meetings don’t work, what will? Feedback very much requested!
