This Week: Polk Open House, Sunday Streets in the Mission
The final plan for Polk Street will be presented at an open house, where you can give your feedback on the proposal, which calls for protected bike lanes on only 11 blocks in one direction. Also this week: Ask the SFMTA about the Muni Transit Effectiveness Project at a forum with the SF Transit Riders Union, and weigh in on improvements for Sunset Boulevard at a public workshop. And let’s hope the weather clears up for Sunday Streets in the Mission this weekend.
