Items denoted with an asterisk (*) can be approved by the City Traffic Engineer after the public hearing and such approval constitutes the CEQA Approval Action under S.F. Administrative Code Section 31.04(h). Otherwise, the SFMTA Board will make the final approval at a later date based on the outcome at the public hearing.
