I hope more people will support this and that the right people will also see it in helping with them on fixing and making Mission a better neighborhood. So that locals from other neighborhoods will want to go there.
Since I went beyond my limit on the original these are also what want to say on the Mission.
Beside all those ideas, also think about these words and terms. In fixing up the neighborhood and making it look nice and great. So that it don't look like a run down neighborhood or people would even want to put money in to help fix it up.
-warm and inviting
-architectural street lights
-commercial architectural street lights
-mom and pop
-architectural décor(for the mom and pop business)
I live in the Outer Sunset and don't really go that much to the Mission. But these are things I would like to see, that could make the Mission look even better.
For the street lights, I want nice commercial architectural street lights:

If they do plant more trees, not all of them have to be very tall some can be at the max the height of a 8 or 9 year old kid. Also it don't have to be just one kind of tree it can be mixture of different ones like maybe these:
Pygmy Date Palm
Flax (Phormium) Tricolor
Some of the trees can even have a flower bed around them.
Examples of flower beds with links
For the trees that don't have a flower bed around them, it can have a tree grate or tree guard around it. Also some of the trees should have rope lights around them, so the neighborhood look nice at night.
As for the street, pave the crosswalks so it look nice. There are lots of different ways to do that.
Examples of different ways with links
Love this idea Lee - are there models from other neighborhoods or cities that you've seen work well?
