On Friday, July 22 a Public Hearing was be held at City Hall Room 412 on this project. Taraval has a safety issue. The corridor between 15th Ave and 46th Ave is on the vision zero high collision network, meaning about 12% of the city streets that make up 70% of the total accidents in the city happen on these network corridors. Taraval Street is one of the most dangerous streets in the city for pedestrians. In the past 5 years, 46 people have been hit by a vehicle while walking and 22 of those hit were getting on or off the train. The L Taraval is slow in service yet carries 30,000 passengers daily. You can find this information and more at the project website. This video explains the proposed stop changes and new boarding islands and impact to parking. You may want to skip to 21:32 in the video, where 21st to 17th Avenues are covered.
Streets highlighted green are setting up Watch Groups! To most effectively reduce crime, neighbors must work together to make their neighborhood safe. The SAFE agency manages the Neighborhood Watch Program for the City of San Francisco. GWPNA encourages concerned residents to volunteer as Block Captains. The first step in doing so is to register with SFSAFE, here is the direct link to the online sign-up form, make sure to select 'Neighborhood Watch' in the Service Request drop down menu.
GWPNA meetings are held the first Wednesdays of the month and are open to members, guests and the public. At our June Meeting a motion was secured to keep our monthly meetings during this summer since it would serve the community in retaining the current traction and momentum of important issues and activities already in progress.
Vice President Lee Hsu along with West Twin Peaks Council are asking the city to come up with a plan. We have heard from a member walking their dog at 5am, that with the use of the iphone flashlight, they were able to spoof off the coyote.
