CHA’s general membership meets once per year at the Annual Meeting in May and the Board meets monthly. In between, lots of volunteer work gets done in the service of CHA’s mission by our committees.
Zoning:helps developers and remodelers comply with CHA’s Neighborhood Design Guidelines and other City policies, thus reducing conflicts with neighbors over setbacks, view and aesthetic issues.
Traffic & Parkingmonitors government projects and policies with the potential to increase traffic through our through and to make parking more difficult.
Presidio: as our neighbors the Presidio Trust and the National Park Service continue to develop and carry out plans for the gradual conversion of the Presidio from Army Base to National Park, we take our role as park stewards seriously and keep our members well informed of public opportunities to comment on good and not-so-good ideas for the park’s future.
Beautification: ever vigilant about activities that might diminish Cow Hollow’s beaty, the Beautification Committee works on such issues as the proliferation of telecommunications equipment on telephone poles and on the need to rid the neighborhood of telephone poles in favor of underground utilities.
Block Captains: originally designed to help our neighborhood be ready for an earthquake or other disaster, CHA’s block captains welcome newcomers, keep track of who lives where and who might need extra help in an emergency and get the word out to neighbors about important events and issues.
In addition to these regular committees, ad hoc committees are formed to address new and complex issues that come along, such as the America’s Cup race and the partial privatization of the Cow Hollow Playground.
