Octavia 'Open Street' - July 16, 2019 SFMTA Board of Directors & Public Hearing

As part of the Octavia Boulevard Enhancement Program, SFMTA is advancing a proposal to close one block of Octavia Street - between Linden and Hayes streets - to vehicular traffic to create safer travel conditions around Patricia's Green, Hayes Valley's central gathering space. The project will also provide safety upgrades at Hayes & Octavia and more loading space.

After four years of community engagement and evaluation during temporary closures of Octavia Street - culminating in a well-attended final open house held in June - staff are moving the proposal to the SFMTA Board of Directors for approval on July 16th. This will serve as the Public Hearing for the project and is your opportunity to formally voice your opinions.

SFMTA Board of Directors & Public Hearing

Date and Time: Tuesday, July 16th, 2019 at 1:00 PM

Location: San Francisco City Hall, Room 400

If you would like to comment on the proposed changes, you may attend the SFMTA Board of Directors meeting and speak in person. You may also submit your comments in writing or by email, to be written into the public record.
