Over the last several months, City planners have been engaging Bayview-Hunters Point residents on transportation issues to develop a real plan of action on how to improve mobility in the neighborhood and beyond.
Now, your San Francisco Bicycle Coalition wants to hear from you about your experience in the Bayview. How do you get around by bike? What are the barriers you see to biking? And what can we do to make the Bayview more bike-friendly?
A couple of weeks ago, the SF Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) held a workshop for an ongoing community-driven planning process. This gave an opportunity for City planners to answer community members’ questions about the project’s timeline, how to get involved, and where improvements will happen first. Folks identified places for comfortable bike routes, intersections where they feel unsafe, and which improvements they want to see as soon as this summer. They also talked about what other changes to propose for the 5-year investment plan. Other attendees wanted to make sure that residents and members of the community who no longer live in Bayview-Hunters Point could voice their opinions too.
The SFMTA team, along with community-based organizations, will continue with more outreach in the neighborhood, including a youth summit this month. During this summer, the list of near term projects for funding will be finalized. Community members will have the opportunity to vote on which projects get funding first.
We want to hear from you. By filling out this quick survey, you will help us identify what we should focus on immediately in the Bayview. Don’t let your voice go unheard.
