Transportation 2030: Community Meetings

From Transportation 2030:

Please join us at a community meeting to learn more about Transportation 2030, a strategic infrastructure investment program proposed for November’s general election ballot. Transportation 2030 will invest in better roads, improved transit and safer streets throughout San Francisco, making it faster, safer and easier to get around.

  • Transportation for the Masses or the Gentrification of Mass Transit? The Future of SF’s Transportation System

    A Community Forum Presented by the Urban Institute for Development and Economic Alternatives (UrbanIDEA) http://urbanidea.org

    Thursday June 5, 5:30pm

    LGBT Center 1800 Octavia Blvd. @ Market

    https://www.facebook.com/events/249022121952694

    Out of the shadows of decades of land use and housing rights battles
    there is an emerging movement for transportation justice that’s
    reshaping the transportation debate and winning real victories for low
    income people, riders of color, and transit dependent populations.

    In the current “Gilded Age” of the Bay Area economy, public investment
    in mass transit is facilitating much of San Francisco and the region’s
    private housing development, land use speculation, and related economic
    development underway in the Bay Area economic “boom.”

    As San Francisco considers $1.5 billion in transit funding measures on this
    November 2014 ballot, prepare for the ballot debates with this UrbanIDEA
    panel. Speakers include representatives from People Organized to Win
    Employment Rights (POWER), Chinatown Community Development Center,
    Senior & Disability Action, and Urban Habitat, with moderator Mario
    Yedidia of SF Rising, to discuss:

    1) The emerging San Francisco
    Transportation Justice movement, recent victories (Free MUNI for
    Youth), the Senior/Disabled Riders campaign, and new campaigns.

    2) The influence of state/regional policy, funding and institutions on San Francisco’s transportation system.

    3) How Transportation and Housing advocates and organizers can work
    together to build a strong and united equitable development coalition.
