SFMTA Sixth Street Walking Tour

From Walk SF:

Join the SFMTA and Walk SF for a Community Walk Along Sixth Street

As part of its Livable Streets program, the SFMTA is seeking feedback from the community on what works and doesn’t work well at Sixth Street currently. During the walk along Sixth Street from Market to Howard, you can share your thoughts on how to improve the design of Sixth Street. Wider sidewalks? Mid-block crossings? A gateway treatment at the freeway? What would you like to see?

Don’t miss this opportunity to envision improvements for Sixth Street to make it safer for walking.

This walk is limited in size: please RSVP to Ken Kwong at (415) 701-4575 or kenneth.kwong@sfmta.com.

    Are you kidding me? How is making the sidewalks wider or setting up mid-block crossings going to help the homeless people who live on Sixth Street? Maybe set up tent city or better still, establish a car park where people who live in their cars and vans can have a place to live in dignity while they get their lives together. Cheeze.
