           Decision:  Approved by City Traffic Engineer for implementation.

           Public Comments:  No comments received.

           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.
 
22.  ESTABLISH – SIDEWALK BIKE SHARE STATION
       24th Street, south side, from 66 feet to 110 feet west of Bartlett Street 
       (44-foot bike share station)*(Supervisor District 9)

      Proposing a Ford GoBike bike share station on the sidewalk adjacent to the 
      Mission Branch Library.

      Decision:  Approved by City Traffic Engineer for implementation.

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 a 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.

* Items denoted with an asterisk (*) can be approved by the City Traffic Engineer after 
the public hearing per Section 201 of the San Francisco Transportation Code.
