This Week: Faster 33-Stanyan, Better Market, Safer Arterials

Most of the action this week is crammed into Wednesday and Thursday, with public meetings about Muni’s proposed changes to the 33-Stanyan, the Better Market Street project, and traffic calming on the city’s dangerous arterial streets.

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