The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), is hosting a series of community meetings across the city for the Transit Effectiveness Project (TEP), and an upcoming meeting has been scheduled for District 5.
The TEP will restructure transit service on certain lines to improve efficiency and connectivity and implement transit priority changes on the most heavily used lines to give buses and trains more priority on our City streets. At the upcoming meeting you’ll have the opportunity to learn more and provide your input on the proposed service and route changes for Muni lines 6 and 71.

Tuesday, February 18 from 6-8pm at the Park Branch Library Meeting Room, 1833 Page

GRANT PROGRAM OF THE VICTORIAN ALLIANCE OF SAN FRANCISCO
DID YOU KNOW that the Victorian Alliance of San Francisco has a Grant Program for Restoration?
Deadline for Submission is January 15th!
Things to note: first preference to projects in San Francisco; second preference shall be given to projects within other Bay Area counties. Nonprofit groups are given priority over commercial businesses.
The Grant Committee determines a project’s merit based on all of the following criteria:
a. Is the project a preservation project?
b. Is the project important?
c. Is the project focused on a specific architectural, decorative or historic resource?
d. Does the project represent good preservation; that is, does the project enhance or harm the resource?
e. Is the project an endeavor that the Alliance will be proud to support?
The committee gives preference to a project that asks for specific support rather than general contribution; that is, will the Alliance’s grant be used for something specific (such as restoration of a stained glass window, wood work or a structure)?
The Committee is also directed to give preference to physical preservation/restoration projects over academic endeavors, so ask for a specific restoration project please!

We’re working with the SFMTA on the WalkFirst Investment Strategy and we are hoping to get as much community feedback as possible about how the City should prioritize funding for pedestrian safety improvements. The outreach phase is scheduled to last from November 25th until January 16th and we want to make sure that there is widespread participation.
There are two primary ways of participating:
1.) WalkFirst interactive online tool – visit http://walkfirst.sfplanning.org/index.php/home to learn more about WalkFirst, pedestrian safety and to give your feedback about what the City should fund.
2.) In-person Focus Groups - In addition to the on-line tool, we will also be organizing in-person focus groups to better understand the challenges that people face with pedestrian safety and to get more in-depth feedback. We have limited resources so we have to group several Districts together and District 5 is being coordinated with Districts 2, 3 and 8. Below is the date and time for the focus group, the meeting will last approximately 90 minutes.
Each participant will receive a $15 Clipper Card. If you are interested in participating, please email us at walkfirstSF@gmail.com
Focus Group: Districts 2 / 3 / 5 / 8
Date: Tuesday, December 10
Time: 11:30 am
Location: Northern Station: 1125 Fillmore Street
Thanks for your help and let me know if you have any questions.
