SFGov Paves Over Its Problems Up at the Twin Peaks Tourist Area, After Taking Away Most of the Available Parking

Thursday, July 13th, 2017

Here you go, new pavement:

Well, mostly. This was a couple weeks ago. Rec and Park is on a paving rampage lately, so maybe they’ve gone further by now, or maybe this is where they’re responsibility ends, IDK:

Infamous TUTOR SALIBA is in the house. I can’t say that I understand NO PEDESTRIAN & TRAFFIC ALLOWED. This doesn’t appear to be an official SFGov sign, it’s just something that somebody made. I don’t understand it, oh well.

Anyway, that was your “transformation” project to not have so many people hanging out up at Twin Peaks. And it’s worked – fewer people go up there and stop to wander around these days. It used to look like this:

You can still park in the middle section there, but cars are now banned entirely on the left side and officially banned from parking on the right side.

I suppose locals learn that Things Are Different Here after experiencing a few break-ins in Frisco, or maybe their friends tell them. But the people who don’t know that Stealing Things From Cars is a Way Of Life for many in the 415 make up the endless stream of visitors coming to town, be they out-of-state peace officers with guns left inside or whoever.

(A couple license plate scanners mounted high on poles ala Tiburon could be highly effective, just saying. Because of the geography / layout.)

Anyway, that’s the update. Feel free to click here and read down about Twin Peaks issues over the years.

I looked for a pellet or a BB (beebee, a little spherical piece of metal) on the ground, but saw nothing.

Bee(bee) on the look out.
