Welcome to Resilient Greater Excelsior Area

Executive Summary

Thirty years ago the Giants were playing The A’s in the World Series at Candlestick and the ground began to shake.  Since then the greater Excelsior area has experienced an unprecedented number of shocks, including heatwaves, poor air quality events and power outages. All of these events offer a wide range of threats to the health and well-being of our residents, especially the vulnerable, and that is why we need to act.

Thanks to a grant from Sup. Safai’s office, the Excelsior Community Collaborative has launched Resilient Greater Excelsior Area (RGEA).  RGEA’s goal is to create a culturally competent strategy to make smart investments in our neighborhood today, so that when times of stress arrive, we will be prepared to care for each other and ensure that our community will continue to thrive.

UPDATES & ANNOUNCEMENTS

Resilient Greater Excelsior Area Launches!

In order to move forward with the development of our strategy we have one goal – TO HEAR FROM YOU!

We hope you will join your neighbors on Wednesday, September 25th from 6:00 to 8:00pm at the Ingleside Station to:

  • Share what shocks (i.e. earthquakes, power outages and heatwaves) you are most concerned about
  • Which members of our community are you most concerned about
  • What kind of investments should we make to protect our vulnerable neighbors

Dinner will be served, so please arrive at 5:45pm – have a bite – and we will start the mtg. promptly at 6:00pm.

Please RSVP by clicking here.  We will need a head count so we can order enough food.

 

Again, we look forward to seeing you on the 25th to hear your vision for a safer, more connected and resilient greater Excelsior.

The Resilient Greater Excelsior Area Steering Committee.
