SFMTA NE Mission Parking Planning Community Meeting 2

From SFMTA via email:

We are writing with an update on the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency’s (SFMTA)Northeast Mission parking planning process. Our second community meeting is coming up soon, and we are eager to meet with you and your neighbors there or elsewhere, if we haven’t already. Be sure to read this note for details about the meeting and how to stay involved in the planning process.Community Meeting 2 will be held on Saturday, January 19, with an open drop-in format where people can come at any time and talk with us about the streets where they live and work and play, and review issues and ideas with us:

Community Meeting 2
Saturday, January 19, 2013, 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
John O’Connell High School gymnasium
2355 Folsom Street

There won’t be a fixed program, no presentation and no overall draft proposal. We are making ourselves available for questions and discussion and input – you are welcome to drop in any time during the three hours, whenever is most convenient for you, to share your questions, comments and ideas. The purpose of this open house is to supplement the meetings and discussions we have been having with neighbors and stakeholders this winter, to catch any additional feedback.
Whether or not you are able to join us at the next meeting, we hope that you’ll participate in the process and help us shape the plan. We are trying to make public engagement as convenient and well-informed as possible, especially the data resources and documents that we’ve posted on our website:


Please be sure to see this page — from here you can download block-level data worksheets for your own block or any block in the study area, review parking conditions and behavior observed in the neighborhood, review SFMTA’s policies and guidelines for parking management, and give comments online. We’ll be sharing more information as it’s developed, so bookmark the Northeast Missionproject page (and we’ll keep you posted with emails like this one, as well).

If you’d like to talk with the SFMTA parking planning team about the project, the data we have collected and shared, or anything related to parking in the Northeast Mission, please contact us in any of these ways:

A third community meeting is being planned for late February and we will be sure to let you know as soon as a date has been decided. The third meeting will have a more formal presentation and group question and answer session, whereas the second meeting is a drop-in open house.

Again, thank you for your interest and involvement in this important process.
