Please join us for a site walk and community meetings to review proposed streetscape and road improvements to Mansell Street in McLaren Park.

Mansell Street in McLaren Park is a main corridor running through the park which is well used by cars, Muni, bikes and pedestrians.  The proposed designs will provide better and safer access for all users of the road.  Some enhancements to the road may include new sidewalks, better crosswalk designations, bulb outs, sharrows, transit stops, and new paving.  We are currently in the planning stage and are requesting your feedback at our community meetings.

Community Meeting: Tuesday, March 19, 2013, 6:30 – 8pm, at the Louis Sutter Roundhouse.  The Louis Sutter Roundhouse is located within Louis Sutter Playground in McLaren Park, near University and Wayland Streets.  This location is close to the 54 and 29 Muni lines.
