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!

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.

Parking Management Plan Proposed for Potrero Hill’s North Slope

By J. Eric Miller : potreroview – excerpt

he San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) has floated a plan to deploy several types of parking management tools on Potrero Hill’s North Slope, including weekday time limits to discourage commuters from leaving their cars and parking meters to offer short-term options for shoppers, visitors, and other daytime users.  If implemented the proposal would impact an array of residential and commercial sites, including the San Francisco Police Department’s De Haro Street facility, Whole Foods, Live Oak School and Jackson Playground.

“We have long known that our neighborhoods have served as parking lots for commuters who walk, bike, or take transit the last mile to their destinations in SoMa or Downtown,’ said J. R. Eppler, Potrero Boosters president “The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Authority has tracked this data, and we have strong anecdotal and neighborhood survey evidence of this. With the amount of new residents and businesses we are adding to our neighborhood, combined with the Chase Center and new offices in Mission Bay, we are looking for curb restrictions that prioritize parking for people that live, work or shop in the neighborhood.”(more)

This looks like the new neighborhood initiated parking plan program that the Board of Supervisors envisioned when they passed Ordinance 180089. We have Safai and Peskin to thank for this. We trust our new supervisors will continue the program.
