NOE VALLEY LIFE Not a season goes by that Noe Valley doesn’t host one or more spectacular events. Various community groups serve Noe Valley and we work hand in hand to support one another and nurture our community. The Noe Valley Hayride has become NVMPA’s signature event with five occurring each year along 24th Street, coinciding with other free, fun, and enjoyable seasonal activities. Many are sponsored by our neighborhood organizations: Noe Valley Association (NVA), Friends of Noe Valley (FNV), and Upper Noe Recreation Center, as well as our own NVMPA. The hayride, which is free for all, boards at Walgreens at Castro and Jersey Streets and at 24th and Sanchez Streets. The view from the wagon gives one a special snapshot of what a neighborhood can be. Small Business Week in midMay celebrates entrepreneurship across San Francisco. NVMPA, in conjunction with the Mayor’s Office of Small Business, sponsors sidewalk sales, held on Saturday, and it’s a perfect time to visit, shop and enjoy our authentic urban village. SummerFEST, a free event the Saturday of Father’s Day weekend, sports the Hayride, a petting zoo, a bouncy house for kids, a chalk drawing contest, musicians, singing groups, clowns and dancers. Sponsored in partnership by the NVA and NVMPA. Wine Walks take place in the summer and during the 24 HoliDAYS celebration. Purchase tickets online for big savings on a wonderful evening of wine tasting and shopping, store discounts, tasty treats and sales at over a dozen tasting stations along 24th Street. Music in the Square, midSeptember, is sponsored by FNV, and there is nothing like

Robert T. Roddick President, Board of Directors

Debra Niemann Executive Director

The Noe Valley Association celebrated their 10th anniversary in 2015. Here are excerpts from their annual report: The Noe Valley Association was established in August 2005 as a fifteen-year Community Benefit District (CBD), which receives an annual special assessment from the 211 properties in the district. The first assessments were received by the NVA in January 2006. The NVA consists of roughly six city blocks, including the side streets of corner buildings, along 24th Street between Church & Douglass Streets. ACCOMPLISHMENTS 2014-2015 New Street Improvements: Many thanks to Supervisor Scott Wiener who obtained over a million dollars in Prop B funding towards the NVA’s installation of three new bulb-outs, new street furniture and four high-visibility sidewalks at Castro, Noe, Sanchez and Church Streets. A special shout out goes to him and to DPW for helping the NVA make manifest our long-term strategic plan, drafted in 2008 with the Noe Valley Community. Bike Racks: The NVA was successful in acquiring a $15,000 grant from the City of SF to purchase and install 32 new bike racks, which compliment the district village identity. We also won $5,000 dollars from AT&T for new bike racks. Success. Our work was noticed by members of the community who freely donated over $4,000 this year to the NVA citing “our good work on 24th Street”. It was a banner year with a considerable line-up of street improvements, all funded through grants, donations and advocacy. Happy 10th Anniversary Noe Valley Association! SERVICES PLAN 2015-2016 Public Rights of Way: Our street porters will continue to work every day to make the neighborhood an even more attractive place for people to live, work and explore. They will continue with daily cleaning and ten monthly steam washings. Two street porters focus on sidewalk and gutter sweeping; graffiti abatement; painting poles, trash cans and curbs; cleaning, weeding and watering tree wells, flower baskets, planter boxes and open planting areas; sidewalk steam cleaning ten times per year; monitoring public trash can overflow, and reporting large bulky items for removal by the City. Streetscape: Continue gardening and maintenance of all the greening projects completed in the district: 227 trees, 24 flower baskets, 20 planter boxes, four open gardens as well as maintenance of all 20 street benches, two community parklets


Thank You,

BOB RODDICK! The NVA Board would like to give a very special thank you to Bob Roddick, our champion for all the streetscape improvements the NVA has made to the 24th Street corridor. Bob helped form the NVA, and has been our chairperson since we began ten years ago. He has tirelessly aided and guided us. He filed all the legal paperwork for the formation of the organization as a 501(c)(3) and wrote the first draft and subsequent revisions to our by-laws. All the while, he has also served as president of the Noe Valley Merchants and Professionals Association. Bob has been a strong advocate for parking, pedestrian access and neighborhood beautification. He raised the funds needed to light 24th Street for the holidays in partnership with the NVA and fellow merchants. He actively and creatively supported events that are making 24th Street a destination for all San Franciscans from SummerFest to the Wine Walks to 24 HoliDAYS on 24th Street. In a very real sense, Noe Valley is Bob's hometown. He grew up in this neighborhood, the child of immigrants, and became a San Francisco firefighter until a serious work injury forced him to change careers. He then became an attorney and opened Noe Valley Law Offices in 1978, where he practices estate planning, family trusts, and business law. Throughout his career, he has advised Noe Valley businesses and residents with an open door pro bono policy. He served on St. Philips' Parish Council, was chair of the annual St. Philips Festival and under his leadership the school survived hard economic times and was saved from closing its doors. Bob is an unflagging booster for all things Noe. The Noe Valley Association is grateful for the good work, time and energy Bob has given to our organization and the larger community. He has made 24th Street an enjoyable, pedestrian-friendly and charming commercial district. Our heartfelt thanks go to Bob for all he has done.

THEN & NOE

At the turn of the 20th century, this Italienate mixed-use building at the corner of 23rd and Douglass Streets housed the New Twin Peaks Fruit Market.

The intersection of Castro and 24th Streets was once a stop for the cablecars that serviced Noe Valley over the hill from the Castro / Eureka Valley neighborhood.

This substantial commercial Victorian building at the corner of 24th and Church Streets is largely unchanged from its construction in the early 20th century.

THEN & NOE

Noe Valley today is one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in all of San Francisco, but the roots of this “Village within the City” are remarkably modest. The area takes its name from the southern peak of Twin Peaks (the other called Eureka and overlooking Eureka Valley). The precipice was named for Don Jose de Jesus Noe, the holder of the original Mexican land grant of Rancho de San Miguel that included present-day Noe Valley, and the last Mexican alcalde (mayor) of Mission San Francisco de Asís. However Noe actually had little to do with the area’s development and he sold most of his holdings after California was granted statehood in 1850. The layout of the neighborhood, including many of the street names, traces its origin to John Meirs Horner, who acquired a tract of over 5,000 acres of the much larger Rancho de San Miguel in 1852. Although he lost most of the land during the economic downturn later that decade, the die had been cast for a grid of streets that paid no heed to the hilly topography of the area (a common theme in the development of San Francisco). For many years the neighborhood was known as Horner’s Addition, and in the late 19th century it became the new home for successive waves of immigrants from Ireland, Italy, Russia, Scandinavia and the German states. Many of the beautiful Victorian buildings for which the neighborhood is rightly acclaimed were built by or for these early residents and merchants in the 1880s and 1890s. Spared the devastation of the Great Earthquake and Fire of 1906, most of the homes in Noe Valley proudly bear the distinction of being from the “pre-earthquake” era. For much of the 20th century Noe Valley remained a small-town haven for working class immigrants and newcomers in the midst of a booming city. The quality of life in the neighborhood has kept many families from leaving as one generation passes their property to the next, which lends a sense of rootedness. As the cultural and aesthetic value of this intact Victorian village came to the attention of families with more substantial means in the last quarter of the 20th century, land values skyrocketed. But even with these changes the “Village within the City” charm of Noe Valley endures and beckons a warm welcome to you and yours. Period images courtesy of Bill Yenne and the Noe Valley Archives.

MONA CARON, MURALIST

19

Mona Caron is a San Francisco-based professional artist, engaging  in  muralism and street art, illustration, artivism and photography. Her focus is on community-informed and sitespecific public art. She has created murals in the U.S. - including the two facing works in Noe Valley, portions of which have graced the covers of last year's and this edition of Noe Valley Guide - and in Switzerland, Spain, Brazil, Colombia and Bolivia. She has also freelanced as an illustrator for over a decade. Born and raised in the Centovalli region of Ticino, Switzerland, Mona owes her love of botany and the natural form to her childhood's natural environment and to her mother's teachings. Her father, theater set designer Peter Bissegger, also influenced her concern with a visual environment’s influence on human emotions and vitality. Mona briefly studied English literature at the University of Zurich before relocating to San Francisco, where she attended the Academy of Art University, graduating with honors with a BFA in illustration. In recent years, through her Weeds projects, she had delved more intensely into artwork that combines painting with photography.  Mona’s goal is to activate public space by simultaneously creating artwork and interactive street happenings, using the painting’s narratives to spark conversations and critical awareness of public space. Mona has illustrated books, posters for music or political events, news editorials and more, using watercolor, pen and ink and various intaglio print techniques. Mona's book illustrations have included collaborations with author Rebecca Solnit, and a children's book based on an Afghani Sufi tale that has been translated into Spanish,  Dari and Pashto. She has also created a number of posters for music and cultural events, music album art and editorial illustration. Mona has created art for street actions and illustrations for media in accompaniment of advocacy groups for social and environmental justice movements, at home and abroad. She has worked with public space and bicycle advocacy groups, and organizations such as Zero-waste Detroit, 350.org, the Federation of Factory Workers and others. monacaron.com
