Western SoMa Neighborhood Transportation Plan Meeting
|July 28, 2009||Posted by jamie under Meetings|
While this meeting covers the area west of 7th Street more or less, there are a lot of topics that may be worthwhile for Rincon Hill residents to learn more about to consider when advocating for safer streets for pedestrians in our neighborhood. The re-design of Folsom Street should also be of interest … Folsom will be very different in our part of town in just a few years, with the street acting as the central, commercial spine of the Rincon Hill neighborhood.
Tuesday, July 28, 6–8pm
Bessie Carmichael Elementary School
375 7th Street , between Folsom and Harrison
Western SoMa Neighborhood Transportation Plan
A follow-up effort to refine and develop selected transportation recommendations from the Western SoMa Community Plan. Come to the meeting to find out about proposed transportation improvements and discuss current and future community needs and priorities!
POTENTIAL TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENTS
1. ALLEY IMPROVEMENTS. A range of treatments could enhance the look and feel of Western SoMa alleys, from traffic calming and additional landscaping to shared vehicle/pedestrian spaces.
2. MID-BLOCK CROSSINGS. To address long block lengths, additional signalized crossings of major streets could provide more direct walking routes.
3. PEDESTRIAN STREETSCAPE IMPROVEMENTS. Under-utilized road space could be repurposed to create more and better pedestrian spaces on selected streets with planted medians, wider sidewalks, and additional street tree coverage
NOTE: Cross-neighborhood issues, such as a re-design of Folsom Street, will be addressed by a separate effort called the Eastern Neighborhoods Transportation Implementation Planning Study (EN TRIPS).
Which types of improvements should get the highest priority? Which locations?
