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.
