Eastern Neighborhoods

http://enufsf.com/ deals with a new Pilot plans the SFMTA has for Dogpatch.
Parking Pilot Proposed in Dogpatch by : potreroview

The biggest problem we face is the elimination of traffic lanes and parking spots on our major streets. The Potrero Avenue plan, along with the expansion of General Hospital is a travesty in more ways than one. Let the Supervisors know how you feel about the way SFMTA is managing traffic and parking:

Here are some photos of the streets in the Eastern Neighborhoods that the SFMTA claims need calming and more parking controls. In truth, the streets are filling up during the day because of SFMTA’s efforts to remove parking spaces. People park here because the BART station is nearby, and because they have been squeezed out of their neighborhoods. Sound familiar? At night and on weekends there is more than ample parking.  Click on an image to launch slide show.

Most residents agree our neighborhoods need more parking, not less. We need parking right off the freeways exits so we can take public transit and not waste all day getting to the final destination. Some Supervisors and Candidates agree.

Plan to raise $100 billion in taxes to fix Bay Area traffic taking shape

abc7news – excerpt (includes video)

A plan to raise $100 billion to fix Bay Area traffic could be put to a vote in 2020.

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) — When it comes to traffic the Bay Area has some of the worst jams around.

With the population still growing, it’s estimated it could reach 10 million by 2040. Local officials are looking to keep up by generating $100 billion through a tax measure…

While the dollar figure is massive, the measure would seek to generate the funds over several decades with a penny sales tax…(more)

This story follows the one about the huge deficit the SFMTA has run up on the Central Subway project and their lack of ability to handle these jobs. Until these issue over management of major projects is dealt with, we question the wisdom of raising taxes for more big projects that claim they will “fix” the traffic problems. Nothing has “fixed” traffic after billions of dollars pouring into “fixing” it. We are billions into digging holes and the traffic is worse than ever. Let’s see how much the traffic improves with the next gas tax before suggesting any more taxes.
