Bike sharing is coming to Sunnyside

stationMotivate, the operator of the Ford Gobike branded bike share system is proposing three bike stations in Sunnyside and would like your input.

The system offers public use of the bikes for $3.00 per half hour ride,  $9.95 for a day pass or $145.00 for a year of unlimited forty-five-minute rides.  If you qualify for Calfresh, SFMTA (Low Income) Lifeline Passes or PG&E CARE utility discount you can get a year of unlimited one-hour rides for $5.00.

Bike sharing is a great way to get around for people who would like to cycle but it also frees up space on the streets for drivers and it lightens the load for Muni by diverting people to other modes of transit.

The proposed station locations are Monterey at Gennesee, Hearst at Edna, Hearst at Baden and Judson, near Gennesee.

Motivate says their Ford GoBike station locations are determined based on a combination of community feedback (public workshops, community meetings, etc), engineering analysis, neighborhood needs and input from the city of San Francisco. Additionally, when selecting suitable locations, numerous criteria are considered including access to solar power, American Disabilities Act requirements and anticipated demand. You can read more about their outreach process on their expansion page.

You can provide feedback on individual locations through their online survey, which is also available in Spanish and Chinese.

Monterey Blvd is now an official high injury corridor.

The latest Vision Zero map is out and our Monterey Boulevard is now included as a high injury corrcrashidor. The area between Ridgewood and Edna streets are now eligible for more funding for traffic calming because, under the Vision Zero Program extra attention is focused on the thirteen percent of the streets that cause seventy five percent of the city’s serious injuries.

Other streets in the neighborhood with this distinction are San Jose Avenue, as well as Geneva and Ocean between Phelan and Mission.

Geneva and Ocean, by the way have shovel ready plans to finish the improvements that have already been completed between Manor and Phelan. All that is need is the funding.

Ways to Comment in June

We will provide reminders and updates as the meeting dates approach. We look forward to sharing the development proposals and hearing your feedback in June.

The selection of a developer is only the beginning of a multi-year process that must occur before the development plan is finalized and approved. During that period, the Balboa Reservoir Community Advisory Committee (BRCAC) will also continue to serve as a primary venue for public information and feedback. After the developer is selected, community design workshops will be held to discuss issues like site design, housing, open space and transportation in more detail than the meetings in June. To receive future announcements about BRCAC meetings, visit http://sf-planning.org/brcac and click the orange “Stay Informed” button.

ANNOUNCING THE BALBOA RESERVOIR RFQ RESULTS

An evaluation panel made up of City staff from SFPUC, OEWD, the Planning Department, SFMTA, and MOHCD, as well as representatives of the Balboa Reservoir Community Advisory Committee and City College of San Francisco, have concluded the Balboa Reservoir RFQ process. We were delighted to receive nine responses from a diverse and thoughtful group of potential partners. The following three RFQ respondent teams (listed alphabetically) received the three highest scores and are invited to submit development proposals:

  • AvalonBay Communities and BRIDGE Housing with Mission Housing, Pacific Union Development Company, and Habitat for Humanity of Greater San Francisco
  • Emerald Fund and Mercy Housing
  • Related Companies with Sares Regis Group of Northern California, Curtis Development, and Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Corporation

The next step is for these development teams to submit more detailed development proposals for Balboa Reservoir. The Request for Proposals (RFP) document outlining the proposal process is now posted on the Balboa Reservoir Development Opportunity website, http://sfwater.org/balboa. These proposals will be due in June, at which point they will be presented publicly and receive community feedback.
