Community meeting set for Tuesday about future of Fillmore District Muni substation

For the second time in a little over a month, residents of the Fillmore District will meet with city officials to discuss development possibilities for an abandoned Muni depot on Fillmore and Turk streets.

The dilapidated Muni substation was originally earmarked for $3.3 million in redevelopment funds, but in February city officials discussed the possibility of diverting some of that money to invest in a trio of struggling jazz clubs which are the centerpiece of The City’s push to revitalize the once-thriving music scene on Fillmore Street.

Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi has said he doesn’t want the abandoned Muni substation to suffer as a result of the funding diversion, so he’s reaching out to the community to get their feedback on how The City should redevelop the area.

On Tuesday, Mirkarimi and other city officials will host a community workshop at 6:30 p.m. at the West Bay Conference Center on 1290 Fillmore Street.
