But a new proposal to scale down the design of the long-planned Performing Arts and Education Center (PAEC) in an effort to spread the bond funds across multiple projects could meet with resistance from members of the City College community.

New signal equipment on Frida Kahlo Way

For everyone who has waited at red lights on Frida Kahlo Way when there are no cars crossing the intersection, this is good news: SFMTA’s Signal Shop workers have installed new equipment to replace the broken detectors (did they ever work?) which have meant inefficient and frustrating experiences for drivers over the last few years.

SFMTA’s Mark Dreger, who is heading up the Ocean Avenue Safety Project, met recently with members of the SNA Balboa Reservoir Committee, and got an earful about the miseries of Frida Kahlo Way. He got this feedback to the right people, and the problem was fixed this week. The system will be getting the kinks worked out initally.

Feedback about Frida Kahlo Way? Contact SNA at info@SunnysideAssociation.org and we’ll make sure you are heard.
