SHARP is a volunteer neighborhood association serving the Inner Sunset and Sunset Heights neighborhoods of San Francisco.  Our activities include program meetings, small financial grants, and a growing resources page with links to concise, useful information about the neighborhood.  We meet in the ground floor meeting space of our building at 1736 Ninth Avenue.  Our program meetings include civic, political, and cultural topics.  The meetings are a great place to connect with friendly and constructive people in the neighborhood, like you.  You’re invited!

SHARP—a resource for the Inner Sunset.

Upcoming Meetings

Unless otherwise noted, SHARP meetings occur at 7 p.m. on the last Monday of the month at our meeting space—the ground floor of 1736 Ninth Avenue (between Moraga and Noriega).

  • Ready or Not: Is the Bay Area Prepared for Climate Change?

    Monday, September 29, 2014

    Global efforts to slow climate change have largely failed. As sea levels continue to rise and extreme weather intensifies, how prepared are we in the Bay Area? What are we doing to adapt to drought, wildfire, and storm-related flooding, and who is doing it? Laura Tam will describe efforts to build climate-change resilience here, including projects to manage water supply problems and sea-level rise. Since 2007, Laura has been the Sustainable Development Policy Director for SPUR, a nonprofit public policy think tank devoted to good planning and good government in the Bay Area.


  • October Election Forum

    Monday, October 27, 2014

    We will hear presentations about three local ballot measures concerning transportation: propositions A (transportation bond issue), B (adjusting transportation funding for population growth), and L (policy regarding transportation priorities).   More information to come.


  • Nelda Williams, record-setting triathlete

    Monday, November 24, 2014

    It takes an unusual person to jump into San Francisco Bay at dawn, swim a mile and a half, bike 18 miles, and run for eight more.  Nelda Williams is unusual and more.  And that’s a good thing.   She broke the course record for her age group (65-69) at this year’s Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon, besting the old mark by 29 minutes.  A charming speaker as well as a dedicated athlete with 20 years of triathlon experience, Nelda will narrate a slideshow about the race, her part in it, and the triathlon world in general.  The perfect program to help keep a Thanksgiving feast under control.
