An update from the San Francisco Examiner:  http://www.sfexaminer.com/storied-demonstration-gardens-headed-long-vacant-mccoppin-hub/

“A community garden that was displaced from its UC Hastings-owned site in the Tenderloin neighborhood this week to make room for a new academic building has found temporary shelter at the Mission District’s embattled McCoppin Hub….

The fence also triggered an Americans with Disabilities Act requirement for a wheelchair ramp, which resulted in its continued closure. As long as the ramp’s installation is outstanding, Demonstration Gardens will not be open to the public at McCoppin Hub, [John] Gavin, [chief policy adviser of The City’s Real Estate Division,] said.

Supervisor Jane Kim, whose district includes McCoppin Hub, is expected to hold a community meeting in the coming months to discuss ideas to activate the plaza once again, though a date has not been set….”

The Hub will remain closed to the public, as it has been for well over a year.  Supervisor Kim has not scheduled the promised community meeting.
