Recall back in September when we stepped in a proposed plan to install streetside public toilets in the Tenderloin. At the time the plan promised to bring eco-friendly, drug use-free johns to some of the nastiest corners of the neighborhood, but wasn't quite ready for public input. Fast forward two months and the pooplet plan has apparently acquired enough fiber to take suggestions from the community at large.
As the TL poo dodgers at the Tender explain, Hyphae Design and the North of Market/Tenderloin Community Benefit District are holding two Town Hall meetings today to gather input on on the plan to curb the illegal dumping. The two groups are mainly looking for input on toilet looks, locations and how to encourage proper usage.
We just missed the 2 p.m. meeting, but there's still time to schedule some "me time" with the 5:30 p.m. meeting, which happens this evening at the Poverello Room at St. Anthony's, 150 Golden Gate Ave. If you can't make it at all, mailed-in suggestions are welcome. Or, just leave your firm, fully-formed suggestions for encouraging proper usage right here in the comments.
