Public Hearing – Whole Foods Market / Housing development at 690 Stanyan St.

vertical_green100w.jpgThere will be a public hearing this Thursday (2/28) to discuss the results of the EIR for the new Whole Foods expected to go in at the site of the old Cala Foods Market. This location has sat empty for the past couple of years while the community debates what kind of development befits the area. Whole Foods has come forward with a proposal for review. And guess what, the hippies hate it and the yuppies love it.

Download the EIR(PDF).

More pointedly, on the pro-side we have the Haight Ashbury Improvement Association. And on the con-side of the argument we have the Haight Ashbury Neighborhood Council. It’ll be interesting to see what the substance of the arguments are, as neither of their websites seem to provide any information.

This meeting should be a blast:
1:30 PM
Commission Chambers – Room 400
City Hall, 1 Dr. Carlton B. Goodlett Place

    Interesting news to me. I did see the Haight listed on Whole Food’s website’s "Stores in Development" list:

    Am fine with having this Haight store. You?

    Yeah, I’m definitely ok with this, and I live within 1.5 miles of this location. In my experience everywhere whole foods has built, the community has been fairly happy with their new neighbor. I’ll try and post updates to this as they come in.
