With the planting of the landscaping on the eastern side of 12th Street, Eagle Plaza now appears virtually complete. A variety of trees and flowering shrubs now populate the space, and a reinforced Leather Pride Flag flies overhead.
Chairs and tables will soon be available on the Plaza during daylight hours, and it is expected to be converted to a pedestrian zone. After that, expect to see more frequent programming bring activity and interest to the Plaza, perhaps including art shows, farmers’ markets, celebrations and other events.
One small construction project remains, a “curb cut” and ramp in the middle of the Plaza. We also await the installation of additional plaques to honor and thank the generous donors who made Eagle Plaza possible.
Perhaps most welcome of all is the fact that the SF Eagle bar is now open on a regular schedule (Fridays 2PM – 2AM, Weekends: 11AM – 2AM), with a full range of events (including its legendary Sunday Afternoon Beer Bust). [Note that the SF Eagle, along with many other local bars, is now requiring patrons to present proof of CV-19 vaccination, or a very recent CV-19-Negative test result. See details here.]
We hope the entire community will take advantage of this civic amenity!
