“Below is a breakdown of the requests in the Participatory Budget application. Some of these still need to be reviewed to ensure they meet our feasibility standards. The timeline for these measures is that they will all be complete by July of this year unless otherwise noted; as more specific timelines are figured out we can plan to let the group know. The measures include:

1. Speed Radar Feedback signs – already met with you to determine location and continuing to move forward on this

o At Monterey and Acadia, for westbound traffic

2.  Speed humps at various locations – we are awaiting speed data to determine eligibility. For the locations that qualify, we will send a ballot to residents of that street. The humps that are approved should be constructed in the summer/fall, dependent on workload for the construction crews. The locations are:

Mayor Ed Lee on Tuesday, the 28th anniversary of the Loma Prieta earthquake, urged San Francisco residents to always be ready for disaster like a major earthquake to strike.
The quake, which struck Oct. 17, 1989, killed 63 people in Oakland, San Francisco and Santa Cruz, damaged 12,000 homes and 2,600 businesses, and caused an estimated $6 billion in damage.

“As we mark the 28th year anniversary of the devastating Loma Prieta earthquake today and reflect on the continuing tragedies of the North Bay fires, now, more than ever, we must work together to ensure that our communities are prepared for the occurrence of a major event,” the mayor said in a statement.

“Since the 1989 earthquake, San Francisco has engaged in an expansive undertaking to retrofit and rehabilitate our critical infrastructure. We have strengthened our buildings, homes, bridges and emergency response centers to make them more resilient, secure and durable.

“Still, we must always be prepared for the worst, which is why we are urging our residents to have an emergency plan in place and disaster supply kits in their homes. For more information on how to prepare for the next major event, individuals can visit, San Francisco’s one-stop resource guide for disaster preparedness.
“In recent months, we have seen how tragedy can strike at any moment and render unthinkable consequences, affecting cities and towns across the world. We must be ready here in San Francisco.”   (more…)
