San Francisco State University’s newspaper the Golden Gate Xpress published a piece on the proposed Balboa Reservoir housing project, ‘Impact of planned housing apprised’.
“Upon project completion, nearby public transit would face significant delays. Travel times could more than double for nearby Muni buses like the K/T, 29, 43 and 49 during peak hours, according to the DSEIR. Congestion along Lee Avenue could also create potentially hazardous conditions for bikers.
“Yet, despite its warnings, the DSEIR dismisses the most contested factor of the project: parking.”
