          Market Street for the Masses Coalition Confers “Good Neighbor” Status on UC Hastings Development Project

          SAN FRANCISCO—UC Hastings College of the Law has been conferred “Good Neighbor” status by the Market Street for the Masses Coalition, a group of leading non-profits that serve the Mid-Market and Tenderloin communities and “envision and push for creative policy change and development without displacement.”

          The status, based on a Good Neighbor Work Plan developed by UC Hastings as part of the Long Range Campus Plan, recognizes the college’s satisfaction of six Good Neighbor Expectations developed by the Coalition to assess housing development projects in the Tenderloin, Civic Center and Mid-Market districts.

          The UC Hastings Long Range Campus Plan calls for development and rehabilitation of up to 1120 units of campus housing during the next five to ten years. “As an anchor institution in the Tenderloin and Civic Center neighborhoods,” notes the Good Neighbor Work Plan, “UC Hastings College seeks comity with our neighbors and community partners and realization of mutual benefits associated with coordinated planning efforts geared toward attaining a more livable neighborhood.”

          The Coalition’s Six Good Neighbor Expectations are:

          1. Engagement with the Coalition
          2. Engagement with Neighbors
          3. Employment Goals
          4. Inclusionary Housing
          5. Commercial Space Meets Community Needs
          6. Good Neighbor Agreement

          “It’s been a really positive process,” said the Coalition’s Steering Committee Co-Chair Michael Anderer, Vice President for Mission Advancement at De Marillac Academy (https://www.demarillac.org/), noting in particular how the creation of new campus housing will help to alleviate housing market pressure in the neighborhood by taking students off the market.

          The sentiments were seconded by Coalition Steering Committee Co-Chair Jackie Jenks, Executive Director for Hospitality House (http://hospitalityhouse.org/), who singled out the benefits of UC Hastings as a partner in disaster preparedness. “That’s an exciting development,” said Jenks.

          UC Hastings is also actively working toward making this easier for development organizations to participate in this process by providing access to legal services through our Community Economic Development Clinic, which will work together with the Coalition to draft template agreement or contract for general distribution.
