Bayview Footprints Presents: San Francisco Transportation Plan 2040
Bayview Footprints Presents: San Francisco Transportation Plan 2040Put on your thinking caps! You are invited to participate in shaping the long-term, big-picture transportation plan for the future of San Francisco. Many of the City's plans include significant improvements to bike, pedestrian, transit and car policies and programs in our neighborhoods, and your input is needed to ensure that the Southeast part of the city gets its fair share of over $3B in funds that are yet to be programmed for transportation improvements over the next 25 years.
Bayview Branch, SF Public Library
5075 3rd Street
Wednesday, March 20, 2013
5:45 PM to 7:45 PM (PDT)
Just to help us know how many people plan to attend, please consider signing up at http://bayviewfootprints-sftp.eventbrite.com/
You will have a chance to hear from staff at the San Francisco County Transportation Authority (http://sfcta.org) about the San Francisco Transportation Plan, and you will be able to give your thoughts, suggestions, and concerns over the Plans at this meeting.
Visit http://www.sfcta.org/sites/default/files/content/Planning/SFTP2/FactSheets/SFTP_fact_sheet_en.pdf for more information.
At a second forum next month, staff from a wide range of City and Regional agencies will come to the Bayview to discuss projects that are either in the planning stages or that are currently underway in our area. You will have the opportunity to find out how you can shape these projects as they move forward, as they will affect our daily lives in the years to come.
Contact Chris Waddling, 415-810-7556 or Jeffrey Betcher, 415-822-8082 for more details about either meeting.
This event is not a San Francisco Public Library sponsored program.
