Thank you November volunteers!

How you get ready: Wear a good pair of washable gloves, long pants, close-toed shoes, and a mask. Bring your own water and any sun protection you might need.

I couldn’t help but smile while driving along Innes this afternoon at how beautiful it was without all the trash. It’s amazing what people can do when we come together for a common cause and to help each other.

IBNA Adopts Innes Avenue:
Saturday July 18, 2020

IBNA members picked up 5 bags of trash in 90 minutes!

Last spring, the India Basin Neighborhood Assocation, working with the Department of Public Works, adopted Innes Avenue from Hudson Avenue to Donahue Avenue for regular litter cleaning. The hope is that neighbors will gather for monthly clean-up mornings (with coffee!).

While Covid-19 restrictions haven’t allowed these events to take place, members of the Board of Directors couldn’t wait to get started!

Thanks David and Anna for spearheading the July cleanup

At the request of Board Member David Springer, who asked his wife Anna for “a clean street” for his birthday, neighbors with shovels, pickers, bags, and masks – because COVID – got to work. Five bags later and the hill looked almost as it did in 1842 when three ‘Gringo’ brothers named Hunter purchased the land from old Jose Cornelio Bernal.


IBNA Annual General Meeting:
Saturday, March 14, 2020 – Canceled

The India Basin Neighborhood Association Annual General Meeting scheduled for Saturday, March 14, will NOT take place this year because of the city of SF request to limit “non-essential” public gatherings. Instead, Board members are extending their terms until we can meet again for a vote, hopefully in early 2021.  Thank you for your understanding. Let’s all stay healthy!
