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!

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.

The Brand-New Traffic Circles of Euclid Avenue – Going in Right Now

Hey, How Come the SFMTA No Longer Allows Neighbors to Vote on These “Improvements?”

Well, last part first. Our SFMTA used to allow residents living near the sites of proposed traffic circles to have a little mini-election. The problem with that was that the SFMTA got its ass handed to it when all the “trial” circles it had just installed on Page and Waller got voted down, by like a three to one ratio, in five separate votes.

Guess what, the SFMTA Project Manager, the Lord of these rings, whose job it was to push this unwanted project through, was “sad” due to this result.

Anyway, flash forward to 2017 and now some neighbors in Jordan Park are finally just encountering construction of these ring things, and man are they pissed. They’re calling 311 to register their vote (in a different, less effective way).

Here it is, as laid out in October 2017:…(more)

We suspect that the new block by block projects are some excuse to do more damage with less funds as the fund are dying up. We feel that the best solution to a cash shortage is to finish the projects underway before starting any new ones. If you agree, please let your supervisors know. Also let them know that you support the proposed SFMTA split if you do.
