Excelsior Festival & Sunday Streets
The Excelsior Action Group tried something new in 2017. Established in 2002, after 15 years successfully hosting the Excelsior festival, it so outgrew its footprint that we partnered with Excelsior Sunday Streets which came to the Excelsior in 2011. EAG joined with SF Sunday Streets to host activities during the event in the Persia Triangle as guests enjoyed the overall event. EAG's 2017's team staffed a bouncy-house, a building blocks game and lawn bowling. In the Persia Triangle guests enjoyed a bluegrass band and visited several community information tables including EAG's stand. The 2017 overall event attracted almost 10,000 visitors! We expect the October 14, 2018 Sunday Streets will do that as well.
Excelsior & Outer Mission Neighborhood Strategy Meetings Move into Next Phase
Excelsior & Outer Mission Neighborhood Strategy The Excelsior & Outer Mission Neighborhood Strategy (bounded by the I-280 on the north and west, McLaren Park on the East, and Daly City on the South) is a project being led by the Planning Department and Office of Economic and Workforce Development. It aims to develop a long-range vision for improving and enhancing the Excelsior, Outer Mission, Mission Terrace, Crocker Amazon, and Cayuga neighborhoods.
Excelsior District Fix-It Clean Ups
The Excelsior Action Group has been working with the Mayor's Fix-It Team - and partner agencies all over the last year to get things fixed in our neighborhood! We invited Sandra Zuniga, Fix-It Director to the January 2018 EAG Board of Directors meeting when we discussed more Fix-it team activities over the next months with the goal of putting more permanent "fixes" in place.
