Advocates Ask Supes to Support a Two-Way Hayes
Advocates are calling for all livable streets supporters who have the time to turn out to the Board of Supervisors’ Land Use and Economic Development Committee meeting today at 1pm to voice their support for a two-way Hayes Street, as was called for in the Market and Octavia Plan.
In 2007, the Hayes Valley Neighborhood Association (HVNA), Livable City, Walk SF, and the SFBC worked with neighborhood and business stakeholders to advocate for the restoration of two-way
traffic on Hayes Street between Gough and Van Ness. Two-way Hayes was included in the
Market & Octavia Neighborhood Plan, adopted in 2007, and a
resolution calling for restored two-way traffic, along with wider
sidewalks and pedestrian safety improvements, passed the Board of
Supervisors unanimously in fall 2007.
Today, Supes will get an update on the status of the
MTA’s restoration of Hayes Street to a
two-way thoroughfare pursuant to a Board of Supervisors Resolution.
We’ve heard a nasty rumor that the MTA may propose doing nothing to the street except reintroducing a crosswalk at Gough, which would be unacceptable to the HVNA and the entire community planning process.
City Hall, Room 263
Meeting starts at 1 pm and this issue is agenda item #6
