This Week: Election, SFMTA Workshops, Vision Zero Rally

Tomorrow is election day, so get out and cast your vote on measures like Prop L, the bid from Sean Parker and the Republican Party to enshrine 20th-century car-centric policies in SF. The SFMTA will also hold three open houses on proposed transportation improvements this week — two on Muni’s 5 and 28 routes, and one on a protected bikeway on the Embarcadero.

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

  • Tuesday: Election Day — get out and vote! On the ballot is Prop A, the $500M general obligation bond for transportation; Prop B, Supervisor Scott Wiener’s measure to set aside more general funds for safer streets and Muni; and Prop L, the measure that pushes free parking instead of safer streets. Contentious seats are also up for election in Supervisorial District 10 and BART District 8.
  • Wednesday: The SFMTA will hold an open house on changes planned to speed Muni’s 5-Fulton route. Proposals include adding bus bulb-outs and replacing stop signs with transit-priority traffic signals. 6:30 p.m.
  • Thursday: Come to the SFMTA’s 28/28L open house to learn about proposals to add bus bulb-outs and to consolidate stops on 19th Avenue. 6 p.m.
  • Also Thursday: At the SFMTA’s Embarcadero Enhancement Public Workshop, you can weigh in on the design of a protected bikeway on SF’s waterfront through hands-on exercises. This workshop will focus on the Embarcadero between Folsom Street and AT&T Park. 5:30 p.m.
  • Thursday through Sunday: The SF Urban Film Fest will feature engaging media and forums focused on urban planning’s role in social equity and civic engagement.
  • Friday: The SF Bicycle Coalition and other organizations will hold a rally for action on Vision Zero and memorial for those who have been killed on SF’s streets — including three victims in just the last two weeks. 10 a.m.
