From City Hall to our streets, San Francisco’s seeing a lot of change as we close 2017. And our city’s most travelled – and most biked – corridor is no exception.
The 2.2-mile corridor of Market Street from the Embarcadero all the way through Octavia is about to undergo a massive overhaul. To closely monitor and push along this multi-year transformation of our city’s grand boulevard, we need to invest in hiring another Community Organizer. Will you join the campaign for Market Street’s visionary transformation with a special donation?
After years of outreach and planning, we finally have a design that features protected, separated bike lanes in each direction of Market Street. Private cars – including Lyfts and Ubers – would be restricted east of 10th Street. The City plans to start construction on the first segment of Better Market Street by the end of 2018.
But, Better Market Street is still just a vision on City slide decks. To make it manifest in concrete will require a tremendous amount of organizing and work. With so many people who use Market Street, engaging and organizing all of those stakeholders to overcome the inevitable opposition to change is now a primary focus of our work.
We need your help in making sure that this project stays on track. That is why I am asking you to consider a special, tax-deductible, year-end gift to support our advocacy work for projects like Better Market Street.
We have proven time and again that with the right resources and people power, we can make real change on our streets. Market Street represents the biggest test of that formula yet: we will not be successful without your support. Make a special donation of $25, $50, $100 or more today.
