In July, we pushed back on the City’s attempt to cancel the Townsend Street Safety Project. Now, our efforts are paying off: Protected bike lanes on Townsend are up for final approval on Nov. 6.
People power is what revived the Townsend project — you’re the reason that it is up for approval before the SF Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) Board of Directors. It took hundreds of letters, a People Protected Bike Lane action, a packed SFMTA Board meeting to let our decision makers know that safety on Townsend is non-negotiable.
Now we have the opportunity to drive this message home. We want to see Townsend protected bike lanes built by the end of the year, a real possibility with leadership from Mayor London Breed adding to Supervisor Kim’s longstanding support.
This aggressive timeline will not be possible without a strong showing from you, our members. We’ve gotten this far; all we need is a final push to make sure Townsend remains a top priority. Join us on Nov. 6 as we drive home the win on Townsend.
