This Week: Support a Safer Polk Street

Tonight, supporters of a safer Polk Street can join SF Municipal Transportation Agency Director Ed Reiskin and D3 Supervisor David Chiu at a meeting of the Middle Polk Neighborhood Association, which will discuss walking and biking improvements in the works. On Thursday, the SFMTA will present its draft proposal for new parking meters and permit zones in the northeast Mission. And don’t forget — all week long, BART commuters are allowed to take their bikes on board during rush hours for the agency’s second trial run.
