a parking or traffic modification, it is considered a Final SFMTA

parking or traffic modification, a member of the public must request 
additional review by the SFMTA of that decision which shall be 
onducted 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
