SFMTA seeks input on proposals

At the last Alamo Square general meeting, Luis Montoya from the SFMTA gave an overview of the process to pursue improvements to bike lanes on Fell and/or Oak Street, from the Wiggle (Scott Street) to the Panhandle (Baker).  They are in the very preliminary stages; funding was just secured about three weeks ago.

You can review the concepts here: (ConceptDrawings). 

These are only meant to illustrate a few concepts for the purposes of soliciting initial feedback.  Additional concepts suggested by the public will be further developed.  You can submit your thoughts directly to Luis (luis.montoya@sfmta.com).

Luis will wait to respond to all comments at an upcoming public meeting on September 13th so that everyone has access to the same information.
