North Beach Neighborhood Meeting on Bulb-Outs

1:06 PM PDT on June 29, 2015

From Hoodline:

As part of the Columbus Avenue Safety Project, the SFMTA is proposing bulb-outs at four intersections in North Beach, and some neighbors are concerned they'll slow down response times for emergency vehicles. Others say the bulb-outs will help reduce pedestrian injuries and fatalities, as they slow down traffic and improve pedestrian visibility.

The North Beach Neighbors group heard from concerned individuals at an April 30 meeting, now they'll be hearing from representatives from the San Francisco Fire Department and SF Public Works.

The venue is San Francisco Italian Athletic Club (SFIAC) at 1630 Stockton Street.
