From Philip Louie, Associate Engineer, SFMTA, regarding the Sunnyside Pedestrian Safety Proposal funds ($120,000) allocated during 2017 Participatory Budgeting. Read about the Proposal here.

“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:

o Melrose between Mangels and Gennessee

The Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Framework for the Balboa Area has been released in its final form, with an introductory letter from Supervisor Norman Yee. (PDF of TDM and letter here.) The TDM will guide planning for transportation in the Balboa Station/Balboa Reservoir area, setting priorities for managing the increase in traffic and transit use resulting from future changes (such as the Balboa Reservoir Project housing development). From the executive summary:

“The Balboa Area Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Framework process was designed to initiate collaboration between the City, City College of San Francisco (CCSF), and surrounding neighborhoods in the effort to encourage sustainable transportation choices in the area. … [The] four overarching goals for the Balboa Area:
• Reduce vehicle-miles traveled (VMT)
• Reduce auto trips
• Reduce traffic congestion
• Reduce transportation costs to preserve housing affordability”

An excerpt from Supervisor Yee’s introductory letter:

“After several rounds of community input and revisions, the development of the TDM Framework included discussions that led to a greater understanding of community concerns related to traffic, safety, transit, and data collection. … Ultimately, the TDM Framework sparked an ongoing, productive conversation and path forward for the many ways we can encourage sustainable travel and maintain access for all in the Balboa Area. This is a continuing work in progress and an ongoing conversation and collaboration with the students, employees, and residents in the neighborhood.”

The agenda for the San Francisco County Transportation Authority meeting on Tuesday Jan 9 (10am, Room 250, City Hall) indicates they will be adopting the framework then. The meeting is open to the public.

Public comment can also be submitted to: Clerk of the Board Alberto Quintanilla clerk@sfcta.org .
