“Linear Park?” Word from Japantown: The Webster Street Linear Park (WSLP) is NOT RECOMMENDED

What’s this? The first time I hear about a “linear park” and, already, the idea’s been killed.

That’s what I learned last night at the poorly-attended “Better” Neighborhood Project meeting. (For some reason the one they had earlier this month had a lot more people, oh well.)

Now last I heard, a few years ago, the powers that be were going to earthquake safe the Japantown parking garage on Post and then during construction people would be able to park their cars on the northbound lanes of excessively-wide Webster Street. But I suppose that got replaced with this linear park idea.

Anyway, here it is:

Oh, and here too. See the driveways and whatnot?

Anyway, that’s your Japantown BNP update.

    If you’re redesigning the street like that, why in the world would you keep the bike lanes tucked between traffic and parked cars? Give them a nice, separated, bidirectional route of their own. It wouldn’t take any more space!
