Neighborhoods Under Review in San Francisco

San Francisco Map from SF Gate

The focus on neighborhoods is vital to the creation of thriving cities.  The work of regentrification and development has impact on its current residents.  The news from major cities and communities that have global appeal can reveal trends in the making of sustainable communities.  The work on “S.F. neighborhoods change names to map out new identity” to sustain the community amidst differing points of view.

The size of San Francisco is about 47 square miles while the city’s neighborhoods continue to grow in numbers. “Through the combined efforts of local real estate agents and residents eager to stake out their own patch of the city, the neighborhoods and districts that have defined San Francisco for generations are being trimmed and tailored into ever smaller, buyer-friendly niche communities. There are plenty of other residents unhappy with the continuing efforts to reinvent San Francisco’s neighborhoods, as Jennifer Rosdail, a real estate agent with the Paragon Real Estate Group, found out.”

“Earlier this month, Rosdail, 45, wrote in her real estate blog about her idea for “The Quad,” a mashup of a neighborhood centered on Dolores Park and consisting of chunks of the Castro, Inner Mission, Mission Dolores and Noe Valley.   “I’m not a real estate developer trying to drive everyone out of their homes,” said Rosdail, who was born in San Francisco. “I wanted to create a tool to explain what was going on with the crazy, rising housing prices in the area,” reports SF Gate.

The focus on neighborhoods continues to be a political and social hot button considering the who, what and where to take the community.  The balance of social and development always but heads when redesigning a neighborhood. The politics is who remains when property prices increase impacting owners and renters simultaneously. The concern for the current residents is not to be pushed out as incoming prospectors seek to take advantage of the revitalization.

The reality is that some neighborhoods remain under developed and economically unstable because there is not enough political and economic capital to raise the influence of the existing community.  Further, the need to attract  a mix of renters and homeowners that promote the communities goals must be established. Neighborhoods that are split in purpose result in loss of community integrity and in the long-term causes decline. The focus of SF neighborhoods is landmark action to watch for how established neighborhoods can thrive as changes are occurring.
