Keep the momentum going on Market Street at June 1 and 5 open houses

 In Uncategorized

Step by step, we’re closer to realizing a people-first Market Street

Thanks to you, we’re moving closer to our vision for a people-first Market Street (where half a million people walk every day).

The City’s ‘Better Market Street’ plan is set to be approved this year. When it is, long-awaited and transformative changes can begin. This includes removing private vehicles all the way from Steuart Street near the Ferry Building to Van Ness Avenue!

We need to keep the pressure on city agencies to approve a strong project this year and begin the removal of private vehicles as soon as the final Environmental Impact Review is in place this fall.

That’s why we hope you’ll mark your calendar to attend one of the upcoming Better Market Street open houses. This is a great chance to talk in-person with agency staff from SFMTA, SF Public Works, and SF Planning.

You can share how important pedestrian safety on Market Street is to you, and how quickly you want changes to happen. You’ll weigh in on the first phase of the project (5th to 8th Streets); limiting vehicles to only buses and delivery; and loading zones and design alternatives for the Gough to Hayes stretch.

Can’t make an open house? Send an email to city leaders now voicing your support to make Market Street the grand boulevard it should be for people walking, biking, and taking transit.

Do you have a mobility impairment? San Francisco Public Works is recruiting participants with mobility impairments for the Better Market Street Delineator Study, which will be conducted at Pier 38 from June 15-22.

This study is to improve mobility, accessibility and safety for sidewalks as part of the Better Market Street Project. They are looking for participants who have difficulty walking but with no aids, or specifically with the use of the following aids: wheelchair, walker (rollator or other), or crutches. This study lasts 45-minutes and is offering $100 to help make our sidewalks safer.

If you are interested in participating in the study, please contact Rosie Dilger at Civic Edge (415) 915-0511 or fill out this form.
