This Week: Muni TEP, Bike to School Day, and Sunday Streets
This Tuesday and Wednesday, don’t miss your chance to provide feedback on planned improvements to speed up the J-Church, 14-Mission, and 22 Fillmore Muni lines at the SFMTA’s TEP workshops. On Thursday, take your kids on a ride for San Francisco’s fourth annual Bike to School Day, and Sunday Streets returns this weekend with a modified route through Golden Gate Park.
Here are all the highlights from the Streetsblog calendar:
- Tuesday: The SF Board of Supervisors meets. On the agenda are resolutions urging the SFMTA to allow strollers on Muni, approving $3.3M in funds to be moved from the Second Street Improvement Project to the Western Cesar Chavez Streetscape Project, and approving $80M in SFMTA revenue bonds. Mayor Ed Lee will also discuss SPUR’s draft Ocean Beach Master Plan, which includes a road diet on the Great Highway. 2 p.m.
- Also Tuesday: The SFMTA Pedestrian Safety Advisory Committee meets.
