ENUF's parking meter survey

SF ENUF---Eastern Neighborhoods United Front---has been working on a survey for residents and businesses to tell us if they need changes to the parking in their neighborhood.

Why are we administering this survey?

We believe the SFMTA isn’t listening to us in any meaningful way and has no plans to. They intend to place meters throughout the NE Mission, Dogpatch, and Potrero Hill with no thought given to what makes sense to those of us that live and work here.

Still not convinced?  Look at how they’ve treated Mission Bay residents.

Do you want meters till 10pm? No Residential Parking Permits? Meters on Sunday?

Fill out our survey!

Our survey is one of the most comprehensive parking surveys to-date in San Francisco. We’re also proud that you can take it in English, Spanish, or Chinese, thanks to the generosity and hard work of our neighbors. The survey has four sections:

Section 1: Focuses on your thoughts about the parking in your neighborhood.

Section 2: Your Business focuses on the needs of businesses (and employees) in our neighborhoods, which can be vastly different than residents.

Section 3: Parking In Your Neighborhood seeks to give us an understanding of the current parking demand in your neighborhood. By subtracting you and your neighbor’s demand from overall demand we should be able to determine how many commuters are parking in our neighborhoods.

Section 4: Your Transit Needs asks about your usage of transportation other than cars. The last few questions ask about specific times when it is difficult to park in your neighborhood. We feel that these will be useful in crafting fair parking policies.

We realize you may not have the time to fill out the entire survey. If you start but don’t have time to finish immediately, you can save the survey by entering your email address and returning later. Not too much later, since the survey will close on September 7th.

Only the first 7 questions are required. Quickly fill them out and click "Next" until you see "Submit." 

We appreciate you filling out the survey and sharing it with your neighbors. We look forward to hearing about your parking needs. Please know that your personal information will never be shared. We will only use your answers to determine what your neighborhood’s parking needs are.
