Aug 27, 5:30 PM at SF Gay Center
For everyone who's complained in recent years about the run-down, dirty and uninviting environment of Harvey Milk Plaza and has ideas to revitalize this historic piece of public property, we have an opportunity next week to make the plaza something LGBT people can be proud of.
Here's the scoop from the Castro Benefit District's executive director Andrea Aiello:
The CBD is holding a meeting on Monday, August 27, starting at 5:30 pm, at the LGBT Community Center, Room Q11, to discuss strategies to make short term improvements at Harvey Milk Plaza. The goal of the meeting is to develop a consensus on a few short term strategies which can realistically be implemented to create a more welcoming environment for all at Harvey Milk Plaza.
I have a few doable suggestions to put forward:
4) Return control of the enormous iconic rainbow flag on city grounds in the center of the plaza to community control. Let's stage a flag-lowering ceremony on September 11 to honor Flight 93 hero Mark Bingham and all who died 9/11. Such a ceremony would bring people to the plaza and what's so wrong with that?
Let's get a good turnout at the August 27 meeting and hear more creative ideas to bring vibrancy and fun to Harvey Milk Plaza. The SF gay community center is located at 1800 Market Street, near Octavia.
