  [Image: muniforward-logo_original.png]

Dear Muni Customer and Outside Lands Patron,

This message is to inform you that the SFMTA will continue to provide service to the Outside Lands patrons this coming weekend. However due to the ongoing subway communication system upgrade projects, the subway will be closed from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. each night. A bus bridge will provide substitution service between Embarcadero and St. Francis Circle from 9:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. To accommodate the concert, we will provide supplemental service on the Nx Judah Express, the N Judah train service (which ends at Church & Duboce after 10 p.m.) and the 5 Fulton/5R Fulton Rapid. The SFMTA encourages concert patrons to take Nx to travel downtown. Temporary taxi stands will be available to pick up customers on the north and south sides of the park. Please tell your family members, friends and coworkers about the Muni supplemental service.[/font][font]For more information, visit www.sfmta.com/outsidelands or contact 311.

Turn Restrictions on Market Street Going into Effect Aug 11
Posted by: MarkScardina - 08-07-2015, 12:57 PM - Forum: City Meetings and Events - No Replies

    [Image: sfmta-update_original.png]
A Safer Market Street is just days away with the upcoming turn restrictions on Market Street going into effect Tuesday, Aug. 11. Turn restrictions between 3rd and 8th streets will prohibit private vehicles at most intersections from turning onto Market Street eliminating conflicts at the intersection, increasing transit reliability, and improving safety for all users. Instead, private vehicles will proceed straight across Market Street.The locations of the turn restrictions are indicated in the following turn restriction notice attached. Safer Market Street is one of over 24 Vision Zero high-priority projects to be completed by February 2016.

The SFMTA Board unanimously approved the Safer Market Street project June 16, 2015. It includes a series of traffic engineering solutions, such as turn restrictions, extension of existing transit-only lanes, and new loading and painted safety zones.[/font][font]One advantage of these solutions is that they can improve safety conditions quickly with minor disruptions and without major construction.  Less than two months after board approval, the majority of work at the intersections is complete, and the remaining intersection work will be complete later this month. The turn restriction signs will continue to go up throughout this week and will remain bagged until Monday, Aug. 10.

Beginning Tuesday morning, Aug. 11, the turn restrictions will be enforced, and violators may be ticketed. Parking control officers (PCOs) will be at every intersection beginning at 7 a.m. on Tuesday to assist in guiding traffic across Market Street in accordance with the upcoming turn restrictions. PCOs will be on hand Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. for two weeks following the unveiling.

The SFMTA looks forward to making Safer Market Street a reality. For more information please visit the movingSF blog post, “Safer Market Street Just Days Away”.

Balboa Reservoir Community Advisory Committee (CAC) Meeting
Posted by: MarkScardina - 08-07-2015, 12:56 PM - Forum: City Meetings and Events - Replies (1)

[Image: balboa-reservoir-banner01-700x180px_crop.jpg]

Dear Community Members,
 
The first meeting of the Balboa Reservoir Community Advisory Committee (CAC) will be held:
 
Date: Wednesday, August 26, 2015
Time: 6:30–8:30 p.m.
Location: Lick-Wilmerding High School Cafeteria (see map below)
755 Ocean Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94112
(Lick-Wilmerding does not have parking, but street parking is available nearby.
The first meeting will focus on CAC goals, procedures, and roles. A regular schedule for future CAC meetings will be determined at the first meeting.
The ongoing CAC meetings consist of discussions among the nine CAC members and presentations focusing on key topics related to the development of the lower Balboa Reservoir site. The topics are inspired by the priorities that we have heard from community members at prior public workshops. The CAC feedback will help to shape the City’s upcoming Request for Proposals (RFP) for the development of the lower site. The RFP is planned for release at the end of the year.
Members of the public will have the opportunity to comment, but comments will be subject to time limits according to City laws governing this kind of advisory body, which will ensure sufficient time for the meeting agenda. Members of the public may also provide input via the CAC website.
A CAC meeting schedule web page will announce upcoming meetings, and publish the meeting agendas and minutes available for download. Members of the public can sign up to receive email notifications whenever new agendas and minutes are made available. If you're interested in receiving these email alerts, visit the CAC meeting schedule web page and click on the "Stay Informed - Get Alerts for This Web Page" at the top right of the page to sign up. 
For more project information about the Balboa site, see the Study website.

Announcing Our Community Investment Grant
Posted by: MarkScardina - 07-03-2015, 11:48 AM - Forum: City Meetings and Events - No Replies

 The San Francisco Police Officers Association is deeply committed to the welfare and protection of every citizen in the City and County of San Francisco—it is what our officers put their lives on the line for on a daily basis. 

We know that the foundation of public safety is built on the strength and vitality of San Francisco’s diverse communities. Our goal is to support the work of members of the community to create neighborhoods that residents can take pride in. That is why I am thrilled to announce a brand new initiative the San Francisco Police Officer’s Association is undertaking to do just this: our Community Investment Grant

Designed to empower local leaders and community members, the Community Investment Grant will fund projects that foster positive experiences for children and the surrounding community. $5,000 grants will be awarded quarterly to those community organizations that work tirelessly to improve their neighborhoods. The grants will fund specific community-building and improvement projects. We believe that locally-rooted organizations are best equipped to identify and meet each community’s unique set of needs. Whether the project includes purchasing new sports equipment for a community recreation center or establishing a community garden, we want to help communities grow and thrive. 

We call these grants “investments,” because we expect significant and lasting returns in the form of community improvements. These improvements deepen the relationship between residents and their neighborhood, garnering higher community participation and engagement. By fostering and nurturing this relationship, we hope to continue the timeless San Francisco tradition of active community involvement. 

The Community Investment Grant is the newest addition to the San Francisco Police Officers Association’s extensive portfolio of charitable and community work. We contribute to nearly 100 charitable organizations across the Bay Area, with gifts totaling over $100,000 each year. 

To learn more about the Community Investment Grant program and to apply for a grant, please visit the SFPOA web site.

SFPOA President

First Lady Florence Harding: Behind the Tragedy and Controversy: Merced Library
Posted by: MarkScardina - 07-03-2015, 11:31 AM - Forum: IT Meetings and Events - No Replies

Dear friend of the Merced Branch Library:

Please join us on Wednesday, July 8, 2015, at 7:00 p.m. for a special Merced Arts & Culture Salon / Summer Stride program:
First Lady Florence Harding: Behind the Tragedy and Controversy
Florence Kling Harding has come down through history as one of our most scorned first ladies. Victimized by caricatures and branded a shrew, she stands at the bottom of historians’ polls, her reputation tarnished by her husband’s scandals despite their joint popularity while in office.  
Historian and author Katherine Sibley discusses how these depictions have prevented us today from seeing how innovative a first lady Florence Harding really was.  
Mrs. Harding's story has a local angle: President Warren G. Harding died at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco in 1923, and Harding Park is named for him.  
Signed copies of Dr. Sibley's book will be available for sale.
Dr. Sibley is the Director of the American Studies Program at St. Joseph's University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Please attend and give her a warm San Francisco welcome!
