Shelter in Place/ Covid-19 Update

The Open Space will continue to remain open as we shelter in place.  We only ask that those who come to exercise and reflect, please observe the social distancing recommendations.

Our General Election Meeting to vote in replacements for termed out board members is normally held in May but because we are not sure when we will be allowed to gather in large groups, we are postponing until a more appropriate time.

Board Meetings are on Hold

The Starr King Open Space Board meets every third Monday of the month at Umpqua Bank Potrero Hill branch (415 De Haro Street) from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. Neighbors are welcome to attend. Our 2020 meeting schedule is:

  • On hold until SIP is over

Stewardship Days on Hold

Come out and be a steward of the Open Space 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. the second Saturday of every month! Volunteers are needed to help take care of the land and native plants. Our Stewardship Days in 2020 are:

  • On hold until SIP is over

Annual Meeting and Election

The Board will convene the open space’s Annual Meeting and Election. This meeting is an opportunity to update the community on the status of the land and the organization, to reflect on the past year of events and accomplishments, and to celebrate the land we love called Starr King Open Space.

In addition, this is when the Potrero Hill community elects new Board members.  All residents (renters and homeowners) 18 and older are eligible to run for the Board, as well as vote for candidates at the Annual Meeting and Election. Proof of residency must be provided to be a candidate or vote (go here for more details on candidate and voter eligibility). Stay tuned for the announcement of our next annual meeting date by following us on Facebook or signing up for our email newsletter below.
