The CLC Sidewalk Search Party hopes that you will use the City's 311 service to report sidewalk hazards and other problems. You can simply dial 311 or better yet, download the "app" on your phone.  That way, you can take a photo and send, because sometimes a picture is worth 1000 words.   The more people who report, the more data we have to get the City to keep on top of sidewalk accessibility around construction zones. Join us at our next meeting on  Monday, December 16, 1:00 to 2:30 at the CLC Office, 1663 Mission Suite 525.  Contact  jennifer@sfcommunityliving.org .
