Final Open House for Polk Street Redesign

From SFMTA:

You’re invited to join us for the final open house for the Polk Streetscape Project!

Since releasing the Preferred Alternative for roadway design in July, the project team has focused its attention on refining the roadway design concept and investigating options for public realm enhancements such as lighting, landscaping, bulbouts and alley improvements. Planning Department, Department of Public Works, and SFMTA staff worked closely with neighborhood group leaders and advocates in the Fall of 2013 to identify community preferences, and then investigated the feasibility and costs of these improvements.

Please join us to view plans and illustrations of the vision for Polk Street, and to celebrate all the work that has taken place to to date. City staff will be on-hand to answer questions and listen to your thoughts on the conceptual design.
