The San Francisco Planning Department, the SFMTA and other city officials will present the new designs for Eastern Cesar Chavez Street to the community tonight, and a strong attendance is key. You’re encouraged to show up tonight and speak out in support of improvements that will transform the street environment for pedestrians and bicyclists.

    I wish I could be at this meeting (I ride down this corridor almost daily), but I’m out of town and hence can’t make it. So I’m really hoping that there is a strong showing of pedestrian and bicycle advocates to stand up to the usual corporate interests putting profit over people’s safety.

    I wish I could attend this meeting as well. I go to the 22nd Caltrain everyday and I’ve had enough bad experiences to make me go all the way up to 17th street instead, adding 2mi to my commute, just to avoid this part of Cesar Chavez.

  • The SF2G (San Francisco to Google) Bike ride – http://www.sf2g.com/ – on Sept 2nd leaving Ritual Roasters on Valencia at 6:30 AM will feature Supervisor John Avalos as a special guest. We will be taking Cesar Chavez from the Hairball to 3rd Street, then heading South towards Mountain View. Even if you are just headed to 22nd Street Caltrain, feel free to join us, otherwise follow us Southbound. No rider left behind, plenty of intersections with Caltrain stations for those not wanting to ride the whole way, or needing to return to SF.
