           The three speed cushions on Kansas Street are a traffic calming measure 
           proposed based on speed surveys and resident complaints. The extended angled 
           parking is necessary to provide enough width for the cushion on that block. 
           Residents of all three blocks voted on the entire proposal, which passed. The 
           median island at the intersection of Kansas Street & 26th Street is being removed 
           as it predates stop signs at the intersection, so no longer provides a safety benefit. 
           Currently, it is an on-going maintenance issue and is directly in the accessible path 
           of travel for pedestrians.

Categorically exempt from Environmental Review: 
CEQA Guidelines Section 15301 Class 1(c): Operation, 
repair, maintenance, or minor alteration of existing 
highways and streets, sidewalks, gutters, bicycle
and pedestrian trails, and similar facilities.

Francisco Administrative Code: For Approval Actions, the Planning Department has issued 
a CEQA exemption determination or negative declaration, which may be viewed online at 
http://www.sf-planning.org/index.aspx?page=3447.  Following approval of the item by the 
SFMTA City Traffic Engineer, the CEQA determination is subject to appeal within the time 
frame specified in S.F. Administrative Code Section 31.16, typically within 30 calendar 
days of the Approval Action.  For information on filing a CEQA appeal, contact the Clerk 
of the Board of Supervisors at City Hall, 1 Dr. Carlton B. Goodlett Place, Room 244, 
San Francisco, CA 94102, or call (415) 554-5184. Under CEQA, in a later court challenge,

the project or in written correspondence delivered to the Board of Supervisors or other 
City board, commission or department at, or prior to, such hearing, or as part of the

Decision is determined by Division II, Section 203 of the Transportation

this decision is considered a Final SFMTA Decision.  If a City Traffic Engineer 
disapproves a parking or traffic modification and a member of the public 
requests SFMTA review of that decision, the additional review shall be 
conducted pursuant to Division II, Section 203 of the Transportation Code. 
City Traffic Engineer decisions will be posted on
