This Week: Support Parking Reform in the NE Mission

The SFMTA’s parking management efforts in the northeast Mission continue on Saturday with a drop-in style public meeting about developing a saner parking system in a neighborhood where drivers circle endlessly to find spots. Plenty of opponents are expected to try to shut the process down, so parking reform supporters will need to make sure they’re heard too.

Here are the highlights from the Streetsblog calendar:

  • TuesdaySPUR Forum: What Makes a Great POPOS? Join SPUR for this talk featuring the Planning Department’s Josh Switzky, Harvard Professor of Urban Planning and Design Jerold Kayden, SF Chronicle urban design critic John King, and other architects as they discuss the future of downtown San Francisco’s network of privately-owned public open spaces. 6 p.m.
  • SaturdaySFMTA NE Mission Parking Planning Community Meeting. The SFMTA will hold an open house meeting to field input on its plans to install parking meters and enact permit restrictions in the northeast Mission to reduce cruising for parking. The SFMTA says its staff won’t present a proposal, but will listen to residents “talk about the streets where they live and work and play, and review issues and ideas with us.” Planners are expected to schedule a follow-up meeting with a proposal. 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Keep an eye on the calendar for updated listings. Got an event we should know about? Drop us a line.

    Queueing favors people with time to burn, so a public meeting process on paid parking is going to degenerate fairly quickly into a time-wasting contest.
