Slow Streets in District 3 — Underwhelming and Uninspired.
50+ days after the concept was introduced, District 3 finally has a “Slow Street.”
I stopped by this week to check things out at Stockton & Lombard.
It’s on a hill.
It’s 3 blocks long.
It had cars flying by.
The densest neighborhoods in San Francisco deserve a whole lot more. We’ve seen other neighborhoods come alive with Slow Streets by allowing for more open space for families, space for essential workers to travel, and social distancing to support nearby businesses.
Almost 300 of you supported our call almost three months ago for a network of Slow Streets within 5 minutes of any resident in District 3. What’s been delivered is lackluster to say the least.
We need a Supervisor in District 3 who prioritizes open spaces for residents. I hope to earn your vote on November 3rd to begin the work to do just that.
