SUPPORT the Repeal of Costa Hawkins : with the de-constr vHUD housing, the state needs to deal with the costs of housing that is pushing people onto the street and this is the one bill that will free cities to handle the crisis as they see fit by removing state limitations. REPEAL COSTA HAWKINS! Let the cities choose.

OPPOSE the Speed Camera Pilot Program in San Francisco and San Jose : 
NO MORE SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS. We agree with the ACLU that we don’t need of want any more surveillance cameras on our streets gathering data on our movements. ACLU filed a complaint about the SF Airport Cameras that are scanning licenses in and out of the airport on the grounds that they are an invasion of privacy. Now we know that all data may be used against us by any government body. Now is not the time to increase surveillance on our citizens. As we know, California has recently begun issuing license to people regardless of their “legal” status, so many people may be swept into the net.
ACT NOW TO STOP SPEED TRAPS IN CALIFORNIA

Shuttle Bus Petition:

We the undersigned request that the City and County of San Francisco institute measures to relieve traffic congestion and mitigate environmental impacts resulting from the Commuter Shuttle Program. We urge the exploration and adoption of alternative transport modes, such as the use of smaller, more efficient vehicles and ride-share platforms, the consolidation of bus routes, and the wider dispersal of the traffic presently concentrated on a narrow selection of over-burdened streets… (sign here)

Shuttle bus facts:

City Hall is allowing the shuttle bus program to continue in spite of many problems. If you have a problem in your neighborhood, you should request a meeting with your supervisor to work on your issues. There is one coming to Noe Valley soon.

Adopt a Pothole.

Join the national 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.

Fewer said Public Works will start with the southbound lane, and will keep one lane of traffic open in each direction during construction hours of 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. There will be no construction on the weekends.

Mayor Ed Lee made a promise at a press conference last week about funding to repair potholes and city streets over the next two years, that Public Works will repave the 25th Avenue crossover into Golden Gate Park within next 30 days:… (more)
