The Noe Valley Voice is published ten times a year and has been a neighborhood fixture since 1977. Here are notable highlights from the latest issue. Links are to stories we've covered here on NVSF or other resources. Follow the NVV link at the bottom for full articles and all the ads.

Letters: No love for realtor drones from one Noe neighbor; Complaints about the one-sided coverage of Prop F and I; Key Kraft on Church St is temporarily closed while the owner gets it ready "for a new fellow who wants to open it up soon."
Features: The Google Buses in the neighborhood will face more regulation soon thanks in part to 296 complaints the SFMTA received from Noe Valley residents from Oct 2014 to June 2015, including nearly one quarter of which (!) came from a single Noe Valley resident; Chuck's on Church Street was held up at gunpoint on Oct 8 - the suspect is still at large; During construction of the Noe Valley Town Square, the Farmer's Market is proposing to relocate to 24th St. in front of the park site and traffic will be re-rerouted from 6:30AM to 2PM on Saturdays.
