Walk to Work on Friday – Pedestrian Safety Hearing on Monday
|April 11, 2013||Posted by jamie under Activism, Transportation & Ped Safety||
If pedestrian safety is a concern of yours – or you just enjoy walking – consider participating in Walk to Work Day tomorrow April 12th and then showing up for a hearing on Pedestrian Safety in District 6 at City Hall on Monday, April 15th at 1:30pm in Room 263. Details below from Supervisor Jane Kim’s legislative aide Sunny Angulo below….
TOMORROW : Walk to Work Day – Meet-up @ 8:45am at the Folsom/Russ crosswalk in front of Victoria Manalo Draves Park. We will try and wait a little bit if folks are running late, but want to hit the road to promote the hearing on our way to work! ATTACHED you will find a copy of the flier that I’m hoping folks can pass out tomorrow. Feel free to make copies and bring some on our walk! The Mayor will be coming from Powell Street, and who knows – maybe we can meet up with him at Sixth and Market on the way to City Hall and you let him know that pedestrian safety is a huge priority for your neighborhood! The press conference will be from 9:30am on the Polk Street steps of City Hall until 10:00am. There’s also a Walk to Work Day Happy Hour later on that evening on Market Street – you should definitely go and meet some new folks that care as much about pedestrian safety as you!
8:45am – Folsom/Russ —-à walk up Sixth Street and through Plaza to City Hall
9:30am-10:00am – Walk to Work Day Press Conference – Polk Street steps of City Hall

MONDAY, APRIL 15 : Supervisor Kim & Yee’s Hearing on the Mayor’s Pedestrian Strategy
The Mayor’s office just did a walk-around to bring everyone a FINAL version of the Mayor’s Pedestrian Strategy, prepared by the Mayor’s Pedestrian Safety Task Force.
It will be released as part of Walk to Work Day tomorrow. I included it as an attachment, but it can also be downloaded at the following link:
We are Item Number 1 on the agenda – so please be there by 1:30pm on Monday! I will try and some stickers ready for you to wear. The flow of the presentations will be DPH, SFMTA, SFCTA and then SFPD – at which point you will have an opportunity to get up and give public comment.

Can’t wait to see you all,
Legislative Aide, District 6
