Opposition to Oak/Fell bike lanes


Please help protect our neighborhood.
 
Tell SFMTA "NO!" to taking away parking on Oak/Fell with no traffic study.
 
The SFMTA board passed their own proposal with no independent safety or traffic study. They said traffic in our area is less today than a study from 2004! Seriously!?

They want to take away over 90 parking spaces on Oak/Fell to create bike lanes. Page and Hayes (one block over) are already dedicated bike transit streets that hundreds use every day.

SFMTA is targeting our quality of life, safety for pedestrians and cyclists, and our wallets!

What this will mean:

 Safety worries for pedestrians---especially kids, disabled and seniors

 More time and aggravation for us spent looking for street parking

 Increase in traffic, congestion and pollution in our neighborhood

 Homes impacted on Oak/Fell can’t unload groceries or load anything in their driveway

 Businesses lose loading spaces

 Towing and parking tickets (More $ for SFMTA!)

 They hope we will install Permit Parking (More $ for SFMTA!) 

 
The residents in our neighborhood need help from our fellow neighbors. Please take action with us!

1. Please come to the appeal at the Board of Supervisors (to speak or just support us) on Tues, Dec 11 at 4pm City Hall Room 250. You can also email them before Dec 11, especially if you can’t make the meeting.
