Eastern Neighborhoods

The biggest problem we face is the elimination of traffic lanes and parking spots on our major streets. The Potrero Avenue plan, along with the expansion of General Hospital is a travesty in more ways than one. Let the Supervisors know how you feel about the way SFMTA is managing traffic and parking:

Here are some photos of the streets in the Eastern Neighborhoods that the SFMTA claims need calming and more parking controls. In truth, the streets are filling up during the day because of SFMTA’s efforts to remove parking spaces.

Most residents agree our neighborhoods need more parking, not less. We need parking right off the freeways exits so we can take public transit and not waste all day getting to the final destination. Some Supervisors and Candidates agree.

Developers Walnut Creek Lifestyle Associates, a joint venture of Essex Property Trust and Transit Village Associates, were at the city’s Design Review Commission earlier this month getting final approval on the garage, planned for the southwestern portion of the BART property on Ygnacio Valley Road… (more)
