After Mayor Ed Lee issued an Executive Directive less than a month ago, we knew that the people of San Francisco would look to the SF Bicycle Coalition and our members to hold the City accountable every step of the way.
The first opportunity to do so is coming up. Here’s your chance to hear what’s being done to implement more protected bike lanes, slow speeds in Golden Gate Park and more.
Board of Supervisors Public Safety Committee Meeting
Thursday, Sept. 8 at 2:30 pm
City Hall, Room 250
Thanks to Supervisor Jane Kim, the Executive Directive on bicycle and pedestrian safety will be atop the agenda at the first Public Safety & Neighborhood Services Committee meeting after the August recess. Because there is a packed agenda and limited time to make comment, we are encouraging you to write an email for public record.
The SF Municipal Transportation Agency will present the progress that’s been made in the first month, including exciting plans to implement protected bike lanes on Seventh and Eighth Streets within the next nine months. They’ve already made progress on more smart and safe street design by breaking ground at Ninth and Division for a protected intersection to prioritize biking and walking at this complex location.
Again, we wouldn’t be here without people like you pushing the City to do more to make sure streets are for people first. Let’s keep this momentum going.
