From Save The Hill,
Two important meetings about the future of the Corovan site at 16th/17th and Mississippi Streets will be occurring in the next few weeks. For maximum impact we urge you to attend both critical meetings, which are different in scope but complementary in potential outcome.  Saturday February 8, 2014 - Community PresentationThe Corovan developers will gather feedback from the broader community on their plans.Date and Time: Saturday February 8th, 10am - NoonLocation: The Neighborhood House, 953 De Haro Street  Saturday February 15, 2014 - Presentation for Save The Hill SupportersThe Corovan developers will make a presentation and answer questions specifically from Save The Hill supporters.Date and Time: Saturday February 15th, 2pm - 4pmLocation: Live Oak School, 1555 Mariposa Street, between Arkansas and Carolina A couple of quick points: Neighborhood Heritage & True Community Services Save the Hill is committed to achieving the best possible outcome for the future design and use of this site. Design:In order to both honor the history of the century old Corovan buildings (the former Pacific Rolling Mill) and modernize them for new purposes we are advocating for an "adaptive reuse" (conversion and rehabilitation) of the entire complex. We believe the site presents an exciting opportunity to develop a visionary and environmentally-friendly project for our community. Use:We support rehabilitating the existing buildings to house a mix of local community services including, for example, a European style public “Mercado” for food and dining, as well as space for office, light industrial, local retail, and cultural/educational uses. For more background on our vision please read Save The Hill’s recent editorial, “A Visionary Project For Potrero Hill” in The Potrero View.  Additional information on adaptive reuse (including images of existing examples) can also be found at Save The Hill’s website.
