Marina Community Association Meeting on 30-Stockton Upgrades, On-Street Car-Share

From SocketSite:

Plans to redesign Chestnut Street, which could include the addition of a transit only lane, traffic signals, and other traffic calming measures, along with the loss of parking, have Marina residents riled up.  Or in the words of a reader who attended yesterday’s open house to discuss the project: “I’ve seen more polite crowds at a witch burning.”

A piece of the San Francisco Municipal Transit Agency’s ‘Muni Forward’ program, the proposed Chestnut Street redesign would shave 4 minutes from the travel time for the 30/30X through the corridor, in part by removing a number of existing stops.

The Marina Community Association is slated to address the project at its spring meeting on April 21.  Don’t forget your matches or extinguishers.

From Marina Community Association:

The Marina Community Association’s Annual Spring General Meeting will take place at the Claire Lilienthal School at 3630 Divisadero Street (between Beach and North Point Streets) on Tuesday, April 21, 2015 at 6:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m.

The MCA Board of Directors is pleased to welcome the following speakers to address our community and neighbors on those topics that are currently effecting our Marina District including:

  • Supervisor Mark Farrell
  • SFPD Captain Greg McEachern
  • Earl Kaing at SFMTA (on the 30 Stockton Transit Priority Project for Chestnut Street)
  • Andy Thornley at SFMTA (on the Car-Sharing Pilot Program)
  • Ryan Hudson at the Apothecarium of San Francisco (on their proposed Medical Cannabis Dispensary on Lombard Street)

Please join us for this informative meeting and discussion (including question and answer sessions) with our District Supervisor and Police Captain, Transit and Parking representatives, along with the business owners behind the proposed Medical Marijuana Dispensary on Lombard Street.
