A petition against eliminating parking on Fell and Oak

Sign a petition "urging the city to not eliminate parking on Fell and Oak. Losing this parking would be devastating to the residents' quality of life." Petition is here.

I had nothing to do with creating this petition, but I think it's an excellent idea.

That's so strange. I live on one of those streets, and a protected bike lane would be way nicer than a bunch of parked cars. I don't know whose quality of life this petition purports to protect, but it's certainly not mine.

Actually, better would be to take a lane of traffic away. Then maybe half of my building wouldn't be covered in soot.

What's the point of this petition? Didn't the City already delay the project in order to figure out how to not eliminate parking?

Why don't you guys ever read the links I provide? In the previous post, we learn from the MTA's site that the project has not been delayed, that it's on schedule.

Gee, how surprising that Michael Baehr, a card-carrying bike guy, would want to take away parking or a traffic lane!

Fine - it's "on schedule", and set for no net parking loss.
What's the point of the petition if the number of spots remains constant?

I remains to be seen if MTA can deliver on the parking. The Panhandle is already working well for more than 67,000 vehicles a day, and you bike people can use Page or Hayes to access the wiggle if Panhandle traffic makes you "uncomfortable." It's nothing but another power grab by the bike lobby.

The project is not on schedule. It has been pushed back a number of months so that the MTA can do everything they can to avoid the loss of any parking spaces. The project was on schedule for a fall 2012 completion and we'll get it back there if Sup. Olague wants to be re-elected.

The MTA says it is on schedule, but I'm sure an anonymous know-it-all like you knows better.
