Polk Street Virtual Q&A Session

From Folks for Polk:

We know you can’t always make it to public meetings — But we also know it’s really important that you participate in the dialog as well.

That’s why Folks for Polk is hosting the very first virtual Q&A with the SFMTA. Polk Street Project planners Luis Montoya and Patrick Race will be available for 1 hour, via Facebook, to answer your questions and address your concerns.

RSVP by clicking ‘JOIN’ in the upper right and we’ll send a reminder with instructions just before the event!

DAY OF EVENT:
Visit the Folks for Polk page (https://www.facebook.com/folksforpolk) and post comments to our post announcing that the Q&A has started.

You can also ‘Like’ other peoples’ comments to vote them to the top of the list. SFMTA staff will reply to as many questions and comments as possible during the 1-hour event.

You can get up to speed on the project at these links:

    Though the Q&A actually ends at 4pm today, everyone can continue to give input online. (Google) Street View Comments adapted for Polk allows you to view every intersection in 360º and leave virtual sticky notes on what they’d like to see changed at each one. http://bit.ly/PolkStVw
