Here’s the background on the soon-to-come CSFM.
And this is from Eric Mar’s office last week:
“This is the “youthful” Peter Lauterborn form Supervisor Mar’s office. Glad to see the market being covered.
The date has been pushed back, but only because of scheduling needs. The MTA has been very supportive of the project and it is currently projected to start June 23rd after the ISCOTT hearing on 6/13.
The reroute is just 7 blocks total, the existing merchants are very supportive of the project, and we have had well over 100 letters of support come into our office. We feel very good about this project. (The only issue has been with the bouncy house, which was really just an example from other markets and that’s been scrapped already.)
But if people have specific concerns they should feel free to email or call my direct line. Of course we want to mitigate any inconveniences to people.
And here’s the new flyer – this one’s more complete and less mysterious than the optimistic original
And this is the vary latest, from the Eric Mar newsletter:
The Agricultural Institute of Marin (AIM) is managing the proposed market. AIM is primarily an educational non-profit which uses its six large, diverse markets to help fulfill their mission. The food options would include both organic and conventional seasonal produce, bakers, meat and dairy, and even local artisans. Their markets have a wide range of price points and accept EBT cards (aka food stamps).
This street closure will be voted on at an upcoming meeting of the Interdepartmental Staff Committee on Traffic and Transportation (ISCOTT).
ISCOTT Hearing: Thursday June 13 at 9AM, 1 South Van Ness
If you can’t attend in person and want to send a letter of support, or you have any other questions or comments, please contact Peter Lauterborn in my office atPeter.Lauterborn@sfgov.org or 415.554.7411“
