Stairs west side of Vermont St, Potrero Hill, San Francisco

A few community members met with  Mohammed Nuru (San Francisco Director of Public Works) last week.  One of the items discussed was regarding installation of connecting stairs on the west side of Vermont St between 20th St and what would be 21st St (if there were a 21st st on Potrero Hill).

This is a adjacent to the curviest street in San Francisco, and the sloped hillside of McKinley Square. There are already existing stairs both at the Top and Bottom. We are pursing to connect these existing stairs to make the neighborhood more walkable, and safer.  This area is somewhat be deemed a hazard, as it can get very slippery, especially in the rainy season.

The are for the needed stairs are roughly marked out in red on the image at below:

We have an architect who has offered to volunteer help with the planning as well as community members who are willing to help with the work.  We are pursing this with SF DPW and Park & Recreation.  If you would like to get involved, or have other thoughts, please email us at:
