More than 200 people filled the second floor of the Ferry Building last Thursday to see the ambitious and visionary designs for the Embarcadero. Now that we have a solid proposal in hand for a two-way protected bike lane from AT&T Park to Fisherman’s Wharf, we need your help to make sure City leaders continue to advance this vision.
At last week’s meeting, the SF Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) and the Port of San Francisco unveiled their long-term vision and near-term changes in store for the waterfront. The excitement for a redesign of the Embarcadero was felt by everyone at the presentation, including City staff and Supervisor Aaron Peskin. While the designs for the protected bike lane had overwhelming support, attendees made clear there is an urgent need for more aggressive and meaningful near-term improvements, given that much of the Embarcadero is a high-injury corridor today.
That’s why we’re asking you to write an email to the Port Commission, which will be meeting on Nov. 13 to receive an update on this project from SFMTA and Port Staff.
Take a moment to write a letter to thank the Port Commissioners and other city leaders for their leadership to move the long-term project forward and let them know your thoughts on the near-term improvements.
