Community meeting about Folsom Street on Wednesday, October 5

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) invites you to join fellow residents and business owners to discuss concepts for the Eastern Neighborhoods Transportation Implementation Planning Study (ENTRIPS) priority corridors on Wednesday, October 5, 2011 from 6-8:00 p.m. at the SoMa Gene Friend Recreation Center (270 Sixth Street at Folsom St). 

The purpose of the EN TRIPS project is to minimize transportation impacts of anticipated growth by developing concepts for key, transit-focused, pedestrian and bicycle friendly streets for the Eastern Neighborhoods in the next 20 years.

At this meeting, the project team will present current conceptual plan alternatives along segments of Folsom/Howard Streets and 7th/8th Streets in SoMa, and along 16th Street as it passes through Showplace Square and Potrero Hill. What do you think about making the sidewalks wider, improving circulation for buses, or adding bicycle lanes?

For more information about the project, visit the web site at You may also e-mail us at or contact Erin Miller, Project Manager at 415.701.5396.

The SoMa Gene Friend Recreation Center is wheelchair accessible. ASL interpretation, a sound enhancement system, a reader, alternative formats of the agenda/minutes, and other accommodations for persons with disabilities may also be available. To make accommodation or language translation requests, please call 311 or TTY 701.4730 by October 2nd.

One response to “Community meeting about Folsom Street on Wednesday, October 5

  1. Have you seen the MTA’s preferred alignment for Folsom Street:
    sidewalk–bike lane–buffer zone–parking–westbound lane–eastbound lane–eastbound lane–parking–sidewalk
    I think the placement of the bike lane and the buffer zone are a little weird. I’ve already called them out on it but they think I’m just being a curmudgeon. It’s very modern and socially responsible 😉 … I wonder how it’ll affect the street during the Folsom Street Fair. Not sure if the buffer zone is a raised island or a green zone with poles like on Market Street. You should make your feelings known at the community meeting.
