In the Neighborhood - Excelsior Action Group

Have you noticed the beautiful banners in the neighborhood that say "The Excelsior Welcomes the World?" Take a look up when you're walking or driving along Mission Street. This is just one of many projects created by the Excelsior Action Group (EAG) to promote our neighborhood's identity as a multifaceted and vibrant community.

The Excelsior Action Group is a community driven organization that aims to strengthen the Mission Street commercial corridor in the Excelsior District. EAG includes residents, merchants and community organizations of the Excelsior neighborhood.

EAG organizes and presents the annual Excelsior Festival that brings residents together and helps merchants connect with the community. EAG promotes monthly community volunteer projects, which include sweeping and weeding on Mission Street and the side streets, abating graffiti with art, planting sidewalk gardens and other fun projects in conjunction with many volunteer groups, including local schools and colleges.

On Saturday, April 24th, EAG is sponsoring a volunteer work weekend in partnership with Rebuilding Together, to rehab several homes and institutions in the Excelsior. As part of this project, they will also be painting a mural along the 280 overpass between Trumbull and Bosworth, and installing a garden in front of the Dragon House martial arts studio at Persia and Mission.

You can be part of this great organization. The Excelsior Action Group meets the first Thursday of every month from 7-8 p.m. at their office at 4702 Mission Street. They welcome community members to attend meetings and help identify issues relating to the Excelsior District that we can resolve together, strengthening the local economy and supporting our small businesses for the benefit of the entire community.
