The Page Street traffic circles are back!

Folks who live on Page St. and remember the traffic circles fiasco on upper Page--they had to be removed after the SF Fire Department complained about maneuvering fire trucks around them---will be interested to learn that the circles are coming back, courtesy of the Planning Dept., in the Market and Octavia Plan in an attachment just added on Feb. 1. "The Market and Octavia Draft Community Improvements Program Document," Appendix C, page 91. In fact, Planning wants to turn all of Page Street. into a "bicycle boulevard," which means that "To the greatest extent practicable, stop signs should be removed from Page Street. Where necessary, stop signs can be replaced by traffic circles or roundabouts..."
