Color Curb Hearings

Hearing Room

Public hearings are held once a month online to legislate the installation of new Color Curb zones or make changes to existing ones. The zones usually recommended for this process are disabled parking (blue zone), short-term parking (green zone), passenger loading (white zone), general loading (white zone) and commercial loading (yellow zone). Requestors are notified by email. Postings for proposed changes are posted in the vicinity of the proposed zone 10 days before the actual hearing date.

The purpose of the hearing is to solicit input from all interested parties on proposed parking changes. The SFMTA staff reports all the received input to the City Traffic Engineer, who has authority to review it and to make a final decision. The outcome of the process is posted within 7 days from the day of the hearing. Upon approval and payment of any applicable installation fees, zones will be installed as soon as scheduling permits.

Opinions on these proposed changes may be filed in writing prior to the hearing by e-mailing to with the subject line “Public Hearing.” Written opinions may also be transmitted to the Sustainable Streets Division via fax at 415.701.4737 or by mail: Color Curb Public Hearing, Streets Division, One South Van Ness Avenue, 7th Floor, San Francisco, CA 94103-5417.  Information on the proposed changes may be obtained from SFMTA Color Curb Program at the above-referenced addresses or by telephone at 415.646.2599 .
