Hello park patrons,
Boy is it hot out here! Final meeting prep is underway. We are finalizing the agenda and I’ll post it right here when it’s up. Meeting starts at 7:00 at Dolores Park Church. We will be done at 8:30.
Speakers/Panelist include Phil Ginsburg, Nicole Avril, Nick Kinsey, Eric Anderson and Adrian Field from RPD; Caleb Zigas from La Cocina; Mike Hamm from Blue Bottle Coffee; and Vickie Bell from Neighborhood Parks Council.
Topics will include RPD‘s past and future communication and outreach process, the RFP process, meeting the potential food vendors, and answering questions from park patrons. Read more background information here.
You may have heard that Blue Bottle owners James Freeman and Caitlin Williams Freeman will not be in attendance. They wrote and sent an open letter to John Birdsall of SFoodie editor for SF Weekly. Read it here. I sent him a list of questions that I was hearing from patrons and asked him to respond, if he was interested. He did.
Finally, please be sure to read the ground rules for tonight’s meeting. Bottom line: Be nice.
See you there.
