Update: This meeting has now been postponed for September 30. See here for more details. We encourage you to still write a letter of support (details at the bottom of this post) and ask the City to not delay this project any further. We will continue to update our communications once the new meeting has been set.
The City had originally announced that the final meeting for the Bay Trail path along Marina Boulevard would be in April. Now three months later, they have now scheduled their final meeting for the end of July. SF Recreation and Parks Department will be presenting their final recommended design for the bicycle and pedestrian path, a popular and beautiful location along our waterfront between Fort Mason and Crissy Field.
Final Bay Trail Community Meeting
Tuesday, July 22 from 6-7:30PM
The Firehouse at Fort Mason Center
Your support and attendance for this meeting is critical to ensure a clear and open Marina path that is comfortable for people biking and walking. Not only do counts show that 98% of the pathway users are people biking or walking, but this remains the only constructed portion of the 500-mile San Francisco Bay Trail that continues to have vehicle access. As part of the public outreach, the City held a survey after their last meeting in December. The results showed that 58% of people want more open space for biking and walking, with even more concerned about conflicts with vehicles. Read our last blog post for more detail on the survey.
This is the time to make sure the final design will relocate the parking to a convenient location for visitors and boat owners to create a beautiful bicycle and pedestrian path. If you cannot make the meeting, we encourage you to write a letter of support. Click here for an email template.
