      TransForm's Regional Meeting September 22: RSVP Now!

      Do you know the secret ingredient of walkable communities?

      For too long, misconceptions and outdated parking codes, traffic policies,
      and zoning have resulted in places where you practically have to get in a
      car to pick up just a gallon of milk and if you don't, it's a hassle – and
      dangerous. But too little parking can be a problem when it sends people
      driving in circles, creating congestion and pollution.

      There are solutions, though. Learn how smart parking strategies can: make
      it easier to get around on foot and bicycle, support local businesses,
      fight climate change, improve public transportation… and even make life a
      little easier for those who must drive and park.

      Speakers: Jeffrey Tumlin of Nelson/Nygaard will talk about the range of
      ways parking impacts people, businesses, and the planet. Jay Primus from
      the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (MTA) will present the
      innovative SFparkprogram.

      When: Tuesday, September 22, 5:30pm – 7:30pm.

      Where: Sierra Club's 3rd floor conference room at 85 2nd St., San
      Francisco (Montgomery St. BART/MUNI station).

      RSVP to: Contact Lauri at lauri@... or 510-740-3150x306 so we
      have enough seating and food. This event is free and open to the public.
