I am strongly against your plan, promoted by then-District 4 Supervisor Gordon Mar, who was defeated in the last election exactly for stunts like this, putting the Bike Coalition over his own constituents, that will remove parking and put a commercial enterprise in a residential neighborhood.
In response to St. Ignatius’ request to entirely cancel 3 Sunday markets and reduce another 7 Sunday markets to 1 block, I must point out the catastrophic impact this request will have on the sustainability of the Outer Sunset Farmers Market & Mercantile, as well as the livelihood of the 70-90 farmers, small businesses and organizations in attendance on a given Sunday and the community who have come to depend on the market.
In essence: from Park Presidio west to 28th Avenue, they plan to eliminate diagonal parking and replace it with parallel parking in order to streamline bus traffic with dedicated lanes.
As the Sunset District struggles to fill vacant commercial buildings, some merchants along Taraval Street west of 25th Avenue wonder if the recent removal of about 70 parking spaces on the commercial corridor might also be the final factor that puts them out of business.
Three light-rail train stops and 36 more parking spaces may be permanently removed from
Taraval Street, between 15th and 46th avenues, if the SF Municipal Transportation
Agency’s (SFMTA) board of directors approves a final plan for the L-Taraval streetcar line
at its Dec. 5 meeting.

“Under the SFPark pilot program, we adjusted rates block by block and by
time of day. And what we saw is that prices fluctuated pretty significantly,”
