I was going to flash “16” to them to show I was down, but I didn’t know how.

(Guess all it takes to form an army in Frisco is free box lunch and giveaway T-shirts. And flags. Lots o’ flags…)

Oh No, LIDAR! – “City to Digitally Map Market Street on Sunday Morning” – Bike Riders Told to Scram, Temporarily

Thursday, November 12th, 2015

Here’s the news, from CivicCenter.Org.

Artist’s conception of so-called “LIDAR trucks” in action. We’re through the looking-glass, people:

Courage.

All the deets:

  • The survey will take place between 3:00 a.m. – 5:00 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 15.
  • Stopping or parking on Market Street and the adjacent side streets is prohibited between 1:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. to ensure the street is clear for the survey. Tow-Away signs have been posted.
  • The survey truck will run along Market Street between Octavia Boulevard and Steuart Street four times in order to get an accurate representation of all the features.
  • The truck also will measure the street features along all the side streets in the project area.
  • There are Temporary Tow-Away signs posted along Market Street and in zones along all the cross streets in the vicinity so that vehicles don’t block the “view” of the curb. PLEASE OBEY THE TEMPORARY TOW-AWAY SIGNS.
  • The LiDAR truck will be escorted by a police motorcade as it cannot stop along Market Street for any reason, since that will distort the data collection.
  • The center lanes of Market Street will remain open to all vehicle traffic including commercial and private vehicles, transit and taxis. The curb lanes will be closed due to the survey motorcade.
  • The LiDAR truck will run against the flow of traffic in two of its four runs, so PLEASE STAY ALERT AND DRIVE SLOWLY.
  • The SFMTA signal shop will place all 26 traffic signals on Market Street onto flashing red for everyone’s safety and the safety of the LiDAR truck and police motorcade.
  • Bicycle riders are encouraged to take alternate routes.

Monday, October 5th, 2015

Here’s the question, from the new NEw MArket Building on Market in our Twitterloin / Mid-Market /South of Market / Tenderloin Adjacent area, you know, The City Part of Town:

How do you #liveNEMA?

And here’s the answer – like this, via The Lofts at SoDoSoPa:

And here’s your catchphrase:

NeMa: 24 months old and still no rent control.**

FIN.

* NEW YORK TIMES: The prospective changes to the Tenderloin — a noirish haunt of Dashiell Hammett’s Sam Spade and arguably the central city’s last working-class neighborhood — have given rise to a new nickname: the Twitterloin.

* FORTUNE: Welcome to the Twitterloin, where tech-savvy cool meets gritty hood

**After 10 months of living in the NeMa, you just might ask yourself why you’re getting hit with a rent increase what’s 25 times more than most of your coworkers are facing, just saying…
