As you may know, the red transit lanes in San Francisco’s Mission District are causing confusion for drivers. The data shows red lanes in the Mission District reinforces gentrification and hurt small businesses. The MTA has decided to move forward with the rollout of Red Lanes on 16th St, using a federal grant the City applied for and with survey data from 2014. The community has an opportunity to come out and speak on the Red Lanes being put onto 16th St. We need a strong turnout to ensure the community input is heard.  Details: Date: May 7th Time: 5:30pm-8:00pm Location: 474 Valencia (Auditorium) We look forward to seeing you. Kindly, LDC Eboard.

New Efforts are going forward to push a new version of SB 50 in 2020. Stay tuned for more on this bill.

SFMTA Ordinance : https://metermadness.wordpress.com/actions/sfmta-review/ This is a stop-gap measure the Supervisors are suggesting along with a renewed call for greater respect for the public on the part of the SFMTA. Supervisors would take back control over some of the SFMTA Board’s decisions while a Charter Amendment is prepared for the November ballot.

SFMTA Charter Amendment: https://metermadness.wordpress.com/actions/charter-amendment/

A campaign to SUPPORT the breakup of the SFMTA is on hold while the Supervisors consider an Ordinance to take back control over some neighborhood projects and apply pressure to the SFMTA by threatening to put the Charter Amendment on the November ballot. Send your comments and complaints to these Contacts for City Hall. There is a sample Letter of suppport.

Stop the corporate takeover of our streets by MTC/Motivate and Ford GoBikes.

Sign the petition to stop the Bikes in the Mission.  People are voicing opposition and demanding removal of infringing GoBikes. At the SFMTA Board meeting,   Board members were impressed by the opposition. Art Torres said “I think this is unacceptable… I’m glad you folks told us about this. This isn’t just going away.” He’s got that right.

TAKE BACK CONTROL OF OUR STREETS!

For inspiration watch the Small Business Commissioners reaction to the RPP presentation here. Go to Item 7:  http://sanfrancisco.granicus.com/MediaPlayer.php?view_id=45&clip_id=25585 The Commissioners’ comments start around (03:07:35).

Adopt a Pothole. Join the intgernational movement. Simply complaining about the potholes doesn’t work. Adopt a pothole and make it your mission to get it fixed. Take a picture. Make note of the address. File a report on it with DPW using the Mayor’s 311 complaint system. You may also call 311 and speak to an operator but this can be time-consuming. It is easier to file a complaint online http://sf311.org to get it entered into the record. All feedback is linked to the 311 system and offers you a referral number, which you can use to check on the status of your pothole. Use that system and report back on your progress.
