  • Tuesday SFMTA Board of Directors Meeting. The Geary Boulevard Improvement Project is on the agenda. Members of the public are invited to observe the meeting in-person or remotely online. Tuesday, August 15, starts at 1 p.m., Room 400, 1 Dr. Carlton B. Goodlett Place, S.F.
  • Wednesday Getting Real About Spillover Parking. Recent changes to parking policy from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission and the state will force cities and developers to deal with spillover parking more directly. If local governments can avoid spillover parking, will people be more accepting of new residents, jobs, and businesses in their communities? Join SPUR for a conversation about potential spillover parking remedies. Wednesday, August 16, 12:30-1:30 p.m. Register for Zoom link.
  • Wednesday Complete California High-Speed Rail in Five Years? Six years after Kennedy gave his famous moon speech, humans traveled to the moon. The transcontinental railroad was built in six years without the benefit of earth moving machinery. And in just 15 years, China built 25,000 miles of high speed rail. So why is it that the first segment of California's HSR project, from Bakersfield to Merced, a distance of just over 100 miles, will take another seven years? Join a virtual Streetsblog panel to find out what can be done to get it built faster all the way from Los Angeles to San Francisco. Wednesday, August 16, 6-7 p.m. Register at Eventbrite.
