Neighborhood Empowerment Network - Miraloma Park Improvement Club Project

Quoted from Project website
"Miraloma Park Improvement Club (MPIC) is partnering with the San Francisco’s Neighborhood Empowerment Network to create a plan to strengthen our community so that during times of stress every resident will feel safe and empowered. MPIC is leveraging the expertise of organizations such as NERT, Neighborland, Nextdoor, SF PUC and the MIT Urban Risk Lab to offer our residents world class resources to create our own plan.

Our goal is to create a roadmap for us to make smart investments of time and effort now so that we can ensure that if disaster strikes (fires, heat waves & earthquakes) our neighborhood will not only bounce back – but that our most vulnerable neighbors will not experience any unnecessary stress or hardship.

The initiative, called Resilient Miraloma Park, will be a highly focused, professionally facilitated planning process that will generate meaningful outcomes that MPIC will then steward through implementation.

At our first meeting 66 residents and a dozen agencies and businesses, including Mollie Stones, SFPD’s Capt. Falvey and our very own SFFD Station 39 Engine Team, worked side by side to share what they love about Miraloma Park and want for it’s future. To view the video of the evening’s activities. (

The team from MIT Urban Risk Lab is taking all of the ideas and assets identified in the evening’s workshop and crafting a summary report that will be shared in the coming weeks."
