Supervisor Eric Mar and the San Francisco County Transportation Authority will co-host a community meeting to discuss the progress of the GearyCorridor Bus Rapid Transit Environmental Impact Report/Statement (EIR/EIS), among other transportation improvements under consideration for the thoroughfare. The Authority and the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) are well underway with the Geary BRT environmental review process and are seeking public feedback on the analysis of changes in traffic and parking conditions, construction strategies, as well as pedestrian and streetscape enhancements that would be part of the BRT project. Agency staff also will be on hand to discuss related Geary corridor improvements, including the Mid-Richmond Traffic Calming Project.
Following up on the Geary BRT public scoping sessions held in December 2008, this community meeting will provide an opportunity for neighbors, business owners, and transit users to discuss the benefits and potential impacts of the project under consideration. The Authority hopes to finalize the Geary BRT EIR/EIS in 2010. For more information about the Geary BRT effort, visit www.GearyBRT.org.
