As you might recall, residents of the Mission and other southeast neighborhoods were outraged by the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency’s proposal to install hundreds of meters throughout the area. Now it appears the agency is holding back on the proposal so it can “conduct further outreach ahead of a board action.”

From Jay Primus of SF Park:

The SFMTA Board will no longer be taking action on the SFpark expansion areas at the February 7th Board meeting. Rather, we will conduct further outreach ahead of Board action.

The northernmost section of the Mission Bay Parking Management Proposal was already designated as an SFpark area and will be the only part of the proposal going forward.

For the SFpark expansion areas, including the Dogpatch and Potrero Hill neighborhoods and the 12th and Folsom and 17th and Folsom proposals, the SFMTA will conduct additional outreach and engage in further discussion with various stakeholders before any further action is considered.

We will be in touch with additional outreach steps.

  1. If the community had not spoken up, these civil servants would have destroyed our neighborhoods with a blanket of meters.

    If you don’t know your neighbors, or have a local community group, I recommend forming one.

    It will keep over-ambitious city officials from using your neighborhood as a science experiment for their own resumes.
