The Portola Neighborhood Association utilizes targeted committees made up of volunteer residents to help direct our organization. You don't have to be a member of the PNA board to get involved, so join a committee today!
The Arts & Beautification Committee aims to revitalize San Bruno Ave through beautification projects. We have helped plant new street trees, organized clean up days with local schools and partners at Burrows Pocket Park and at the Alemany Island, and planted flower barrel planters for business merchants, and installed unique and artistic trash bins outside our local stores. All Portola residents and businesses are encouraged to come out and help us beautify San Bruno Ave.
The Business Development Committee aims to support existing businesses along the San Bruno Ave on issues such as marketing, technical assistance and overall corridor promotion so that they and ultimately the corridor can flourish. We also work with property owners on long-term vacancy storefronts to connect with potential businesses that the community demands.
The Safety & Transportation Committee aims to improve overall safety in the Portola neighborhood and along San Bruno Corridor. We work to connect local merchants, residents, community groups, local schools and the police district to build neighborhood resilience. We also work closely with SFMTA and other city agencies to help improve transportation and parking in our community with projects such as the San Bruno Ave Corridor Study and the Alemany Island Pedestrian and Bicycle access study.
