Our Board of Directors meetings are usually held on the first and third Tuesdays of each month.

At the first meeting in March, the Board will consider proposed safety improvements to Polk Street as part of the Polk Streetscape Project, which include Muni bus stop changes, a protected bike lane, high-visibility crosswalks, business loading zone improvements and street lighting. The Board will also have the opportunity to establish a new parking permit area for the residents of Alamo Square and North of Panhandle neighborhoods. The resident-driven initiative would create Residential Parking Permit Area Q and restrict unlimited parking by non-residents.

Once finalized, the full agenda will be posted on the Board’s web page 72 hours in advance of the meeting. All regular Board meetings can be viewed on The City channel 78 or online at the SFGovTV2.

The Muni Forward team are working on upgrades to various transit routes throughout the city.
