Sunday Streets Mission Community Meeting

From Sunday Streets:

Sunday Streets co-presenting agencies, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency and Livable City invite you to participate in a discussion about Sunday Streets 4-series pilot project in the Mission. The Mission Sunday Streets Pilot features four consecutive events the first Sundays in May, June, July and August (5/6, 6/3, 7/1, 8/5) on the popular Mission route – Valencia from 14th-24th and 24th Street from Valencia to Hampshire.

The purpose of this pilot is to explore the feasibility of holding more frequent Sunday Streets events on an established route. Our first step is to hold one Sunday Streets per month in the Mission on a regular schedule for consistency – the 1st Sunday of each month – to see what the challenges are and how it works for the community. SFMTA and Livable City are working with SFSU Professor Susan Zieff, PhD to conduct an Economic Analysis among businesses along the route, and gathering input from residents, business owners, local employees, religious institutions to gauge the impacts and support for the idea of having a regular Sunday Streets route in the Mission (or in other areas of the City if it does not work out here).

Sunday Streets staff will be present to answer questions, address concerns and take input from the those in attendance. We look forward to the opportunity to discuss this program with the community on Monday, March 19th.
