Our 2017 New Year’s Resolution: Win the safe streets so sorely needed in SoMa.
Thanks to your call for safe streets, near-term protected bike lanes are a real possibility all over SoMa. Key decision-makers have heard our call for safe streets: At a recent meeting, SF’s Director of Transportation Ed Reiskin publicly made this commitment for near-term improvements for Folsom and Howard Streets.
Folsom Street, Howard Street, Townsend Street and 11th Street are all candidates for protected bike lanes in the next year. Not only will these improvements make our streets safe in the near-term, but they will help push forward and inform our long-term vision for SoMa.
With so many projects on the table, we have an unprecedented opportunity to have huge impact on our streets. With strong momentum coming out of 2016, now is the time to get involved and drive the change you want to see in SoMa.
Our SoMa Committee is a group of passionate members who get together to organize around what changes they want to see in our streets and how to achieve them. Join us on Feb. 15 at our fourth meeting to talk about near-term protection options that can be implemented quickly and how to get them in the ground.
