Community Meeting on SF General Hospital Parking and Transit

From SF Health Network:

City and County of San Francisco (CCSF) is hosting a community meeting to update you on activities and proposed plans for changes at SFGH and in the surrounding vicinity. This meeting will be next Wednesday, September 30th from 6:00 to 7:30 pm in the 2nd floor cafeteria of the San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center.
Topics of discussion will include the following:
·         Status of the new acute care and trauma center
·         Potrero Avenue Streetscape Project
·         Neighborhood Transportation, Traffic and Proposed Garage Expansion
·         Proposed new UCSF Research Building on the SFGH Campus

Potrero Avenue is the only direct bike route between the Mission District and southern neighborhoods east of Valencia Street. If you bike on Potrero Avenue, you know there is a transformation afoot, much of it being driven by changes at San Francisco General Hospital.

The new Potrero, with its buffered bicycle lanes from 17th-25th Streets, will open up safe, healthy and affordable transportation alternatives for the Mission, Potrero Hill, Bayview and Dogpatch neighborhoods, all while facilitating access to SF General Hospital and local businesses.

Join us at this important public meeting to ask questions of representatives of the hospital, San Francisco Public Works, the SFMTA and UCSF, including discussion on the Potrero Avenue Streetscape Project, neighborhood transportation and the proposed garage expansion.
