Many thanks to everyone who came out to our community meeting on June 19! Detailed meeting notes are here, for anyone who wasn’t able to attend.

How To Voice Your Support

  1. SIGN THE PETITION

  2. ATTEND A MEETING AT CITY HALL
    There will be a series of three public hearings on whether 770 Woolsey should be officially designated an Historic Landmark. The first will be on the afternoon of Wednesday, July 17, 2019 in City Hall, Room 400. The second and third hearings will be even more important to have high attendance to come to testify about the significance of 770 Woolsey to the Portola neighborhood, to your family, and to the entire City.

    To get detailed information about these hearings, please sign up for our e-newsletter updates.

  3. SEND A LETTER to the SF Planning Department urging them to designate 770 Woolsey an official Historic Landmark. The Friends of 770 have already sent in a batch of support letters from the neighborhood, but it isn’t too late to add your voice! You can still email your letter directly to the Historic Preservation Commissioners--their email addresses are here.

    Thank you!

    Sincerely,

    your name
