At the last SNA meeting, Captain Joseph McFadden of the Ingleside Police Station told attendees that his officers would be out during August on Monterey Blvd (as they often are) enforcing moving violations of the type identified by the City’s Vision Zero program–those that endanger vulnerable road users like pedestrians and cyclists. Last year we had collisions resulting in severe injuries and one death on Monterey, triggering the new designation as a “high-injury corridor.” Yesterday a resident saw several citations taking place on Monterey.

The votes are in from the recent round of District 7 Participatory Budgeting — and the Sunnyside pedestrian safety proposal got a fantastic number of notes — 892 — and came second in its category. As far as we know at this point, that secures the $120,000 needed to make those improvements happen. A big thank-you to all those who took the time to vote.

This is the package of improvements that SNA helped draft, working with Sunnyside Elementary School PTA, Friends of Monterey Boulevard, and other local residents. Congratulations are due all around! Details on what we asked for below.
