This Week: Ed Reiskin Talks About Smarter Street Design

Update: The SFMTA meeting about changes to the Muni 5-Fulton line was postponed until July 17.

This Wednesday evening, choose from two meetings, including a SPUR forum with Ed Reiskin talking about the NACTO Urban Bikeway and Street Design guides. Or, talk with city planners at community meetings about upgrades planned for Ocean Avenue. Sunday Streets is also back in the Richmond this weekend.

Here are this week’s highlights from the Streetsblog calendar:

  • Tuesday: SPUR lunchtime forum explores what San Francisco can learn from London’s “approaches to issues like housing, design, transportation and sustainability.” 12:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday: The Planning Department will hold a public workshop on a streetscape revamp for Ocean Avenue, where a plan will be presented for improvements like sidewalk bulb-outs and new greenery. 6 p.m.
  • Also Wednesday: Join SFMTA Director of Transportation Ed Reiskin at a SPUR Forum called “Designing for Urban Streets.” Reiskin serves as the president of the National Association of City Transportation Officials, which recently published its urban street and bikeway design guides. “Come learn how these guides can serve as blueprints for building innovative street solutions.” 6 p.m.
  • Friday: The agenda for this week’s SFMTA engineering hearing includes 110 on-street car-share parking spots and some of the Muni stops proposed to be shared with private shuttles in the SFMTA’s regulation pilot program. 10 a.m.
  • Sunday: Sunday Streets returns to the Inner Richmond. Clement Street is no longer on the route this year, but all of Arguello Boulevard, from Golden Gate Park to the Presidio, will be open for car-free fun. 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
