SAVE THE PARKING ON THE 1400 BLOCK OF POLK
The SFTMA has proposed to remove 50% of the parking from McAllister to California Street, which includes the 1400 block of Polk. They want to put in a raised bike lane on one side of the street.  Please sign and pass on to any interested parties.
SFMTA recently relented on some bike lanes but are threatening the merchants and residents with installing tow signs on the East side of Polk during morning “rush hour”. Merchants have written petitions against this in the shops.
Lots to object to here. The raised bike lanes do nothing to make anyone safer and could cause more accidents. Eliminating parking from a crowded street will kill businesses that are struggling now.

Why is SFMTA eliminating parking on streets where parking meters are generating income?
