This Week: Bike-Share Forum, the Future of Market and Bartlett

At tomorrow’s SPUR forum you can get the latest details on Bay Area Bike Share, and the next day you won’t want to miss the screening of a new film exploring the future of Market Street. Mission residents can also check out the final proposal for the Bartlett Mercado plaza project on Thursday. Here are all of this week’s calendar highlights:

  • Also Tuesday: SPUR hosts a forum on Bay Area Bike Share — on the panel are reps from the SF Bicycle Coalition, the SFMTA, and the Bay Area Air Quality Management District. 6:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday: Watch a screening of “This is Market Street,” a new documentary that “spurs a dialogue about the future of Market Street and preserves an experience of the corridor before its transformation.” The film will be followed by a panel discussion with the filmmaker, Walk SF’s Elizabeth Stampe, city planners, and others. 6 p.m.
  • Thursday: The Planning Department hosts a community open house to review the final design proposal to transform a block of Bartlett Street in the Mission into a pedestrian haven. 6 p.m.
