In the later part of 2021, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) wrapped up the first phase of a process to create a Community Based Transportation Plan, or CBTP. Through outreach with residents, community organizations, and the supervisor offices, this process aims to create a comprehensive list of traffic calming and transit improvements to both Visitacion Valley and the Portola District. The project is now in Phase Two, and SFMTA needs your feedback on the proposed set of changes they have put forward based on what they heard during phase one.
There are a few ways that you can give feedback! The project team will be attending a slew of events in both neighborhoods until the end of July, a full list is available here! Head out and connect with your neighbors and be sure to let SFMTA know what they did right, and what they missed. Along with this, a survey is live in which you can provide feedback on the proposed improvements. As the process moves forward, we need your input to ensure the CBTP is reflective of the traffic safety concerns that local residents have. After Phase Two closes out, Phase Three will begin to solidify traffic safety projects to be implemented, and the draft CBTP will go before the SFMTA Board of supervisors for approval in 2023.
We are looking forward to this process and are excited to see a comprehensive plan that addresses these neighborhoods’ transportation needs. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
