In response to plans to build a second power plant in our neighborhood, the Innes Avenue Coalition was formed in November, 1994. Two-years later in 1996, the Friends of India Basin came together as a park stewardship organization for Shoreline Park. By 1998, the two groups merged to form the India Basin Neighborhood Association. Since then IBNA has worked to keep what is great about India Basin, the natural beauty and open space, while embracing the growth and development that is inevitable in a jewel like San Francisco.
Oh, and that second power plant? Not only was it never built, and by 2006 the PG&E Hunters Point Power Plant was removed as well. That’s the power of community.
