We at the San Francisco Coalition to Underground Utilities (SFCUU) want to get rid of the ever-increasing overhead wires and wooden poles that that mar the views and landscapes on almost half of our streets.

Long before children soared in the swings of the West Sunset Playground, an 1868 city map showed the San Francisco’s west portion known as the Outside Lands with numerous lots reserved for public purposes such as parks and school buildings. Only two plots were reserved for parks in the Sunset District; what became McCoppin and Parkside Squares. The rest were purchased over time.
Outside Lands recently filled western Golden Gate Park again for a glorious and somewhat disruptive weekend. This huge event among other things limits car travel through the park – and eventually bike and pedestrian access – before, during and immediately after the concert.

In a city infamous for its astronomical rent and high cost of living, it is rare to hear a San Francisco neighborhood described as being reminiscent of a small Midwestern town.
Outer Taraval merchants between 46thand 47th avenues sent a letter to San Francisco Mayor London Breed and San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) Board members, requesting that the SFMTA provide alternative solutions to staging, provide a traffic study, provide more information about the impact of construction on local businesses and a commitment from SFMTA To receive regular updates during construction.
Starting August 12 and continuing for approximately two weeks, the subway between Embarcadero and West Portal will close early at 9:30 p.m. When the subway closes early, buses will run above ground to connect all stops, beginning at 9:30 p.m. through the normal end of train service at 1 a.m.
It’s August, which means the SF Board of Supervisors has ended its Spring legislative season, culminating in the passage of the single most important ordinance we vote on: the City’s $12 billion budget.
