Let’s Make The Excelsior a Slow-Down Neighborhood

The Excelsior and Mission Terrace neighborhoods, criss-crossed by busy corridors, are diverse communities wanting to see slower, neighborhood streets that make sense for these family-friendly residential areas. What if everybody slowed down on the streets? Attend one of these meetings and help identify where the safety of you, your neighbors and the most vulnerable people can be improved.

I Want Safe Streets in the Excelsior

The SF Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) is hosting two more open houses for the Excelsior Neighborhood Traffic Calming project, where you can participate and learn about their findings from last year’s public workshop and neighborhood outreach. City staff received overwhelming feedback from the community last year to pay more attention to the significant number of schools and parks in the neighborhood and the safety for youth, seniors and folks with disabilities. Now is the time to learn about the plan of action and how you can stay involved before the final proposal is developed to help improve residential streets for people.

Tell City planners and engineers you want traffic calming measures such as traffic diverters, speed humps, new crosswalks, and better street signage in the Excelsior. Join the SFMTA staff at two open houses on Saturday, Feb. 9 and Wednesday, Feb. 13. These meeting times are set to allow parents and community members who may have other responsibilities during the weekdays, so you’re welcome to drop in anytime during the open house.
