Homeless Outreach Program

April 8th, 2015 by Megan

The Hillcrest Business Association is connecting with Todd Gloria and the Alpha Project to end homelessness in our city, one neighborhood at a time. After a successful launch of the Downtown Partnership Clean and Safe Program, Hillcrest hopes to join the ranks of neighborhoods assisting the homeless. On Monday April 6th Council Member Todd Gloria, HBA board president Jonathan Hale and Alpha Project CEO Bob McElroy held a press conference at the HUB  to announce the launch of the Hillcrest Homeless Outreach Program (HOP).

The Hillcrest business district is widely known for its compassion and progressive methods to encourage change. The latest neighborhood endeavor will bring city officials, The Hillcrest Business Association and the Alpha Project together in providing homeless outreach during a one-year pilot program.

Over the next year, experts at the Alpha Project will deploy a part time out reach team throughout Hillcrest five days a week to provide homeless outreach services. While in the neighborhood, homeless out reach teams will encourage individuals to engage in activities that will advance their path to recovery. Hillcrest businesses will be provided a “hotline” to notify out reach teams of issues requiring attention.

The HBA hopes to move the homeless outreach program from a pilot to a standard operating procedure in the neighborhood and will continue to look for funding to peruse these efforts into perpetuity.

Help us design Hillcrest’s New Civic Space: Pride Plaza

March 23rd, 2015 by Megan

From March 22 through April 26 atthe Hillcrest Farmers Market, the Hillcrest Business Association is hosting a weekly design lab for the upcoming Normal Street and Pride Plaza project. The Hillcrest Business Association has been in the process of designing a new neighborhood park for this Pride Plaza space and is looking for your input. This community design lab will be held every Sunday at the Hillcrest Farmers Market Information Booth from 9am-2pm.

Come out and play architect for a day and give your design feedback on the three park project proposals. We will have the Farmers Market Information Booth set up as a design studio so you can come in and offer input about the proposals.  The HBA hopes to take your feedback and develop a phase one action plan. Events that utilize this space, such as the Hillcrest Farmers Market and Pride Block Party, have outgrown the current design of the plaza. This redevelopment project will transform Pride Plaza to accommodate the needs of the neighborhood. Options include bike lanes, café-style seating, and expanded open spaces, so come take a look and voice your best ideas!

Normal Street is changing, and we encourage you to be a part of it! Show your design skills and help us create the best Pride Plaza we can.
