Regional Measure 3 On the June Ballot  Nine Coutny Coalition is following this one
RM3 depends for passage on the combined approval of voters in all nine Bay Area counties.  Unlike Measure AA, RM3 will only require a simple majority of “Yes” votes to pass, since RM3 is a toll not a tax.

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.

SUPPORT SENSIBLE TRANSIT

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!

SFMTA Pulls Another Lucy on Us – This time giving our curbs to Scoot – 
The legislation is before the Planning Commission on Thursday. Let the Mayor, Planning Commissioners and Supervisors know how you feel about the privatization of public 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.

Corporate Bike Rentals in the Mission

Open letter to the Mayor Breed and District Supervisors Cohen and Ronen:

Re: Corporate Bike Rentals in the Mission

We just got word that Motivate/Lyft is planning to install GoBikes on the southwest corner of Utah and 25th St. where there is a school and a Healthy San Francisco building. The East Mission Improvement Association, residents and nearby neighbors oppose this installation and request that the Board of Supervisors stop further installations of GoBikes in the neighborhood around General Hospital, where both neighbors and hospital employees are struggling with difficult problems on the street and violent behavior has escalated.

We understand that the SFMTA CAC passed two motions last week that will be presented to the SFMTA Board that detail important changes in the “shared bike program” that they would like to see considered. Please review these prior to approving more station installations.

There has been a huge backlash against corporate takeover of public streets in the Mission, there have been at least three public meetings to discuss the loss of public access to curb space, and more are anticipated.

Sincerely,

Mari Eliza
