Weigh in on options for a ‘Twin Peaks for All’
This spring, Walk SF, our members, and our partners like the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition finally won permanent car-free space on the east side of Twin Peaks Boulevard (half of the figure eight).
But that could just be the start of expanding space for people walking and biking on Twin Peaks. As San Franciscans began to shelter in place, the City made all of Twin Peaks car-free. This included Twin Peaks Boulevard and Burnett Avenue as they lead up to Twin Peaks in order to reduce crowding at the parking lot. With this safe space to socially distance and stay active, roughly 1,000 people have walked, jogged, and biked Twin Peaks every day since.
Now, with its Twin Peaks for All project, SFMTA is considering a variety of configurations to the Twin Peaks roads – some of which would greatly expand the amount of permanent car-free space. Join us in speaking out for people-first solutions that also ensure accessibility to this special place for those unable to walk all the way up Twin Peaks.
Take the Twin Peaks survey by Tuesday, November 3, and you can weigh in on what car-free space on Twin Peaks should look like.
