Coordinated street delivery for better safety, citywide

The SFTP’s equity analysis identified pedestrian and bicycle safety projects as important ways to address socio-economic and geographic disparities in San Francisco’s transportation system. The SFTP would support the City’s Pedestrian and Bicycle Strategies, as well as better coordination of street maintenance, safety projects, and enhancements in neighborhoods citywide.

Draft Policy Recommendations

Local Streets Maintenance and Development / Complete Streets

  • Work with partner agencies to identify and implement near-term (5 year) recommendations based on SFTP Small Project Delivery research
  • Apply a complete streets checklist to street resurfacing funding allocations and require coordination of curb ramp design and construction requests with bulbouts, subject to funding availability
  • Dedicate Prop K funds and revenues to the design and implementation of complete streets enhancements that “Follow the Paving”
  • Dedicate Prop K funds to address geographic and socioeconomic equity by helping to strengthen the pipeline of plans and projects, particularly in Communities of Concern
  • Increase transparency and promote public involvement by sharing agency prioritization and development processes (e.g. Citizen’s Guide to Transportation Improvements in multiple languages)
  • Support development of an Implementation Plan for the Bicycle Strategy, including completion of a bicycle network comfort index to inform prioritization
