If you love Slow Streets, speak out at the July 21 SFMTA Board meeting

Let’s support this solution now – and into the future

We all need safe ways to get around on foot and bicycle with adequate space for social distancing during the coronavirus. One way the City responded to this need is through SFMTA’s Slow Streets Program, which prioritizes people on designated streets (vehicle access is only allowed for residents, deliveries, and businesses).

At Walk SF, we strongly support safe, healthy, people-first solutions like Slow Streets during this emergency and into the future. This approach supports making San Francisco a city where everyone can get around on foot and bicycle without fear of traffic violence. Plus, Slow Streets builds and strengthens our communities.

Every neighborhood that wants a Slow Street should have one (and neighborhoods like the Tenderloin have been waiting far too long to get one).

If you feel the same, your voice is needed at the upcoming SFMTA Board of Directors meeting on Tuesday, July 21 at 1:00PM.

I’ll share talking points with you and some tips (giving public comment over the phone is easy but requires a bit of guidance).

And if you can’t make it… Be sure to send a personal email to your Supervisor in support of Slow Streets (plus ask neighbors to, too!). You can also grow our campaign for Slow Streets with a donation today.
