GENERAL PUBLIC COMMENTS
A member of the public commented that the MTA doesn’t let people comment sufficiently in these hearings and the MTA legislates these items purposefully to cite drivers to make money for the city. The commentor said that the previous Color Curb Manager was fired because he was holding the MTA accountable and that these hearings are useless. They commented on the hearing officer’s method for conducting the meeting, that the officer was trained to do this by management. They commented that the hearing officer only limits comments from people against the item.

Whether or not the City Traffic Engineer’s decision is considered a Final SFMTA Decision is determined by Division II, Section 203 of the Transportation Code. If the City Traffic Engineer approves a parking or traffic modification, it is considered a Final SFMTA Decision. If the City Traffic Engineer disapproves or declines a parking or traffic modification, a member of the public must request additional review by the SFMTA of that decision, which shall be conducted pursuant to Division II, Section 203 of the Transportation Code before the decision becomes a Final SFMTA Decision. Final SFMTA Decisions, whether made by the City Traffic Engineer or the SFMTA Board, can be reviewed by the Board of Supervisors pursuant to Ordinance 127-18. Decisions reviewable by the Board of Supervisors are denoted with a pound (#). Information about the review process can be found at: https://sfbos.org/sites/default/files/SFMTA_Action_Review_Info_Sheet.pdf.
