A message from SF DPW:

I would like to thank you on behalf of San Francisco’s Department of Public Works, the Municipal Transportation Agency and Department of City Planning for attending the Second Street Improvement Project meeting on Thursday September 20, 2012. The meeting was a huge success and the feedback provided by the community is invaluable in determining the future vision for 2nd Street.
At the meeting several of you filled out a survey providing us feedback on design elements you would like included in the final design concept and their order of preference. However, since some neighbors and merchants were not able to attend the meeting, we would like to extend the survey to residents and merchants for their review and comments. We are extending the survey period until Friday October 12, 2012.
We have posted the presentation materials and a brief comparison of the design options on the project website. Please feel free to forward the link to any neighbors that might be interested in providing the Project Team with feedback. Thank you.  


Lastly, I’m including a link to an article that ran this past weekend regarding the upcoming Second Street Improvement Project. http://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/place/article/Repaving-2nd-Street-revamping-traffic-3905515.php

We're supporting the One Way Cycle Tracks option as the best for pedestrians and street greening, particularly in front of the ClockTower Lofts.  I addition we think not widening the sidewalks on both sides of the street (currently SF DPW proposed widening only the western, shady side because of an undetermined cost to underground the power on the crowded, sunny, eastern side) for the three blocks from Harrison to Townsend is missing a huge once in a generation opportunity to do this right.  You could write that in the feedback form if you agree...
