This Week in Livable Streets Events

This week, help redesign Cesar Chavez Street, take a planning tour of Downtown Oakland, speak up for 15 MPH school zones, and get “thinking” with two historical walking tours. Here are the highlights from the Streetsblog calendar:
  • Monday: Cesar Chavez Community Meeting. Help envision the redesign of Cesar Chavez Street with the SFMTA, the SF Planning Department, and community members to make this important connector safe and accessible to everyone. 6 pm.
  • Tuesday: The SF Board of Supervisors meets. The board will revisit the issue of the proposed sidewalk AT&T boxes, zoning for affordable housing at the Booker T. Washington Community Center, the Hunters Point Executive Park Subarea Plan, and hold a public hearing on cost assessments for sidewalk and curb repairs. 2 pm.
  • Wednesday: SPUR Lunchtime Forum: Artists re-envisioning public space. San Francisco-based artists Rebar, Amy Balkin and Sergio De La Torre discuss their projects for the inaugural Sister City Biennial exhibition Urbanition. “Their proposals range from improving immigrant rights and revamping the Sutro Baths to re-envisioning BART as a more human-centric system.” 12: 30 pm.
  • Thursday: Downtown Oakland Tour. Oakland Planning Commissioner Madeleine Zayas-Mart and architect Morten Jensen lead this SPUR tour showing recent changes and future plans in Downtown Oakland where the city is adding 10,000 new housing units. 12 pm.
  • Friday: SFMTA Engineering Hearing. Show your support for safer streets at at 100 schools in the city identified by the SFMTA for 15 MPH zones. 10 am.
  • Saturday: Thinkwalks: Walk the Wiggle! “Before bikes were invented, the popular Wiggle bike route was a foot trail to avoid these same hills. Change the way you see the landscape as we talk about everything from art and bike politics to floods, lakes and native societies.” 10 am.
  • Sunday: Thinkwalks: Water Walking Tour. Learn about “the waterways that once coursed through the Mission District, their meandering locations and ecology, their implications for the growth of SF, their spring sources and controversial origins.” 10 am.
