This Week: Road Diet on San Jose, SFMTA Strategic Workshop

Tonight, the SFMTA will hold a community meeting on a proposal to upgrade the existing bike lane on northbound San Jose Avenue by removing a traffic lane. Here are all of the highlights from this week’s calendar:

  • Monday: The SFMTA will hold a community meeting on a pilot project for a road diet on the northbound side of San Jose Avenue, which would calm traffic and make more room to “upgrade the existing bicycle lane with a wider, more separated bikeway.” 6:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday: The SFMTA Board of Directors will hold an all-day workshop at the Muni Presidio Yard about the Bicycle Strategy, the Pedestrian Strategy, and efforts to improve Muni. The meeting is open to the public. 9 a.m.
  • Tuesday and Wednesday: SPUR hosts two lunchtime forums to discuss new books on walkability: On Tuesday, the topic will be Julie Campoli’s Made for Walking, which looks at the ingredients of walkable cities and “real transportation options.” On Wednesday, a forum featuring author Kaid Benfield will discuss his book People Habitat, which “dives into the ecology of human settlement — from why people don’t walk much anymore to the relationship between cities and religion.” 12:30 p.m.

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