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.
