Upcoming Better Market Street Project Workshops

BOMA San Francisco Members:

The City of San Francisco is in the early planning stages to redesign Market Street via the Better Market Street Project to make it safer for pedestrians and bicyclists.  Two workshops and one webinar have been scheduled in July. Your input will help all San Franciscans build a better Market Street.

The workshops are your opportunity as a member of the public to share your thoughts and priorities about transit, safety, accessibility, and other improvements such as street furniture, trees, and cafes. Consider participating in one of the following ways: 
  • Workshop on Tuesday July 17th,2012 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the SFMTA located at One South Van Ness Ave in the 2nd Floor Atrium. 
  • Workshop on Saturday July 21st, 2012 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the SFMTA located at One South Van Ness Ave in the 2nd Floor Atrium. 
  • Can't make it to either of the workshops? You can still participate in a webinar on Thursday July 19th, 2012 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. 2012. Register online.

About the Better Market Street Project

The goal of the Better Market Street Project is to revitalize Market Street from Octavia Boulevard to The Embarcadero and reestablish the street as a premier cultural, civic, transportation and economic center of San Francisco and the Bay Area. At the last series of workshops, they heard the community's desires and dreams for Market Street. During the upcoming July workshops, the Better Marker Street organizers will discuss ideas to improve the way people move and spend time along the street and ask for feedback on their approach.

How can we, together, make the street safe and efficient to walk, bike and take public transportation? How can we make the sidewalks and public spaces inviting places to shop, linger, experience the arts and enjoy the vibrancy of San Francisco?

Join the Better Market Street Project team to: 
  • Share your thoughts with urban planners and other transit, bike, and pedestrian mobility experts. 
  • View initial ideas for a Better Market Street.
The Better Market Street Project is led by the SF Department of Public Works in collaboration with the SF Planning Department, SF Municipal Transportation Agency, SF County Transit Authority, and the Office of Economic and Workforce Development.
