Send Letter of Support to Add Slow Streets to Dogpatch and Potrero Hill

In April The SFMTA implemented the Slow Streets ( https://www.sfmta.com/projects/slow-streets-program) program which is designed to limit through traffic on certain residential streets and allow them to be used more as a shared space for foot and bicycle traffic. Twenty corridors have been planned or implemented as a Slow Street--but none in Dogpatch. The goal is to provide more space for social distancing during essential travel during the Pandemic. The SFMTA Board of Directors is meeting next Tuesday, July 21st at 1pm and is scheduled to vote on the next round of Slow Streets, Phase III. ( To attend Meeting click here: Board of Directors meeting, July 21, 2020) Ahead of next Tuesday's SFMTA meeting, we urge you to reach out to the SFMTA Board of Directors, SFMTA Slow Streets Team and Supervisor Walton's office to express your support for Slow Streets. We have attached a template at the bottom of the post. Please cc anyone else in your network that you think would be interested.

The following Slow Streets are being voted on by the SFMTA, Minnesota St. from Mariposa to 22nd to provide a safe, calm and sustainable North South Corridor in Dogpatch;

  • Arkansas between 17th and 23rd, to provide a safe, calm and sustainable North South Corridor in Potrero Hill and provide a protected Slow Street adjacent to Jackson Park and the Potrero Hill Park;

  • 20th St between San Bruno and Pennsylvania  to provide a safe, calm and sustainable East West Corridor in Potrero Hill; and

  • A one-block extension on the existing Mariposa Slow Street, from Texas to Mississippi to complete the existing Slow Street corridor.

And this is the full list that we are continuing to work toward. Dogpatch / Potrero Hill Slow Proposed Slow Streets  EMAIL TEMPLATE

To: slowstreets@sfmta.com MTABoard@sftmta.com cc: info@dogpatchna.orgwaltonstaff@sfgov.org To SFMTA Board:   I’m writing to you in strong support of Slow Streets, a new program that has helped so many people to enjoy our streets safely during this pandemic. I hope the SFMTA Board joins in the support of this program and finds ways to make this program more permanent so that we can enjoy safe, calm and sustainable streets throughout San Francisco.   While many San Franciscans have enjoyed Slow Streets, I am also asking you to urgently implement Slow Streets in Dogpatch, the Tenderloin and other neighborhoods that do not have Slow Streets corridors yet. This program will only be successful if all San Franciscans can enjoy and access these streets.   More specifically, I am requesting that Slow Streets be implemented on the following streets in Dogpatch and Potrero Hill:

  • Minnesota St. from Mariposa to 22nd and Tennessee St. from 22nd St to 26th St. to provide a safe, calm and sustainable North South Corridor in Dogpatch;

  • 20th between Pennsylvania and Tennessee to provide an East West connection between Dogpatch and Potrero Hill;

  • Arkansas between 17th and 23rd, to provide a safe, calm and sustainable North South Corridor in Potrero Hill and provide a protected Slow Street adjacent to Jackson Park and the Potrero Hill Park;

  • 20th St between San Bruno and Pennsylvania  to provide a safe, calm and sustainable East West Corridor in Potrero Hill; and

  • A one-block extension on the existing Mariposa Slow Street, from Texas to Mississippi to complete the existing Slow Street corridor.

Thank you for your thoughtful consideration.
