This Week: Park(ing) Day and a Fundraiser to Fight Prop L

4:05 PM PDT on September 15, 2014

Lots of good stuff this week, including a fundraiser for the campaign against Prop L tomorrow and the return of Park(ing) Day at the end of the week.

Here are all of this week’s highlights from the Streetsblog calendar:

    • Monday: SFMTA Director Ed Reiskin will join a Middle Polk Neighborhood Association meeting to discuss the transit funding initiatives on the November ballot, including the $500 million transportation bond (Prop A) and Supervisor Scott Wiener's measure to tie transit funds to population growth (Prop B). 6:30 p.m.
    • Tuesday: The "No on Gridlock, No on Prop L" campaign holds a fundraising event at PUBLIC Bikes. Swing by to support efforts to make the city safer, more walkable, and less congested. 6 p.m.
    • Wednesday: Supervisor Katy Tang and staff from SF Public Utilities Commission, SPUR, and the National Park Service hold a town hall meeting to discuss changes envisioned in the Ocean Beach Master Plan, including the Great Highway road diet that was shelved. 6 p.m.
    • Thursday: Wonder why women make up only a third of bicyclists on SF's streets? Come to SFBC's Women + Bikes Night for some short films and discussion about the issues that prevent more women from riding. 6:30 p.m.
    • Friday: Time again for Park(ing) Day, the SF-born annual event that has spread to cities around the world and inspired the parklet program, now an SF institution. Hang out in a reclaimed parking space in your neighborhood, or create one of your own. All day.

Keep an eye on the calendar for updated listings. Got an event we should know about? Drop us a line.
