Mayoral Debate Monday Night Will Focus on Streets and Parks

A mayoral debate scheduled for Monday night promises to be the best yet on issues near and dear to Streetsblog readers.

Sponsored by Walk SF, the Neighborhood Parks Council and the Friends of the Urban Forest, the forum will tackle a variety of important questions on pedestrian safety, sustainable transportation, parks and the state of our streets. It will be moderated by San Francisco Chronicle urban design writer John King.

What would you ask the mayoral candidates? You can submit your questions when you RSVP here.

The forum, which starts at 6 p.m., will be held in the State of California building at 455 Golden Gate Avenue in the Milton Marks auditorium.

We’ll have full coverage on Tuesday.
