This Week in Livable Streets Events

This week’s Streetsblog Calendar is weighted heavily with transit agency meetings, culminating with the SFMTA’s long-awaited vote on the Bike Plan. It won’t be all work though: Sunday holds major fun. Here are the week’s highlights.

  • Tuesday: SFCTA Board of Directors Meeting. Eddy and Ellis sidewalk bulbs, streetcar procurements, and the Doyle Drive Replacement Project are on the agenda. 11:00 a.m.
  • Wednesday: Metropolitan Transportation Commission Monthly Meeting. The commission will consider a draft high-speed rail investment strategy, station area plans for the new SMART corridor in Marin, allocation of Regional Measure 2 funds for transit operations and planning during the upcoming year, and many other transportation-related budget items. 10:10 a.m.
  • Thursday: Forum: The Intersection Between Sustainable Urban Planning and Building. The American Institution of Architects San Francisco and The Netherlands Office for Science & Technology are presenting "An informational Exchange between the U.S. & the Netherlands." Plans call for a day-long exchange on the latest trends in sustainable building and urban planning and industry best practices. 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
  • Thursday: SFBC Pre-MTA Board Meeting Workshop. In anticipation of the MTA Board meeting on the Bike Plan the following day, the SFBC is hosting an in depth one-hour workshop intended to make sure all SFBC members understand how the meeting will work, and how to pack testimony with information that will convince the Board to pass the plan. 6:00-7:00 p.m.
  • Friday: SFMTA Board Meeting to Vote on the Bike Plan. This is the meeting bike advocates have been building towards for months. The MTA Board will vote on adoption of the Bike Plan and certification of the EIR. Once complete, the City can ask Judge Busch to lift the injunction that has prevented any physical bike improvements in the city for over 1,000 days. 9:00 a.m.
  • Sunday: Byke Pride: SFBC’s Contingent in the SF Pride Parade. After Friday’s huge Bike Plan vote, advocates have a chance to party, and SFBC members have a chance to "show their byke pride" at the Pride Parade. Parade: 10:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Byke Pride time to be determined.
