Community meeting on 19th Avenue transportation improvements
The SF State Neighborhood Taskforce and the Transportation Committee invite you to a community-wide forum to discuss the 19th Avenue Transit Corridor Investment Study on Wednesday, Nov. 2 at 6 p.m. in the Towers Conference Center.
In coordination with other agencies, the San Francisco County Transportation Authority is exploring the feasibility of transit improvements along the corridor's southern portion. The focus is on re-aligning the M-Ocean View light rail line to the west side of 19th Avenue and related multimodal improvements, with some attention to strengthening the transit connection to the Daly City BART Station.
Planners seek to inform the community of the coming process and solicit input on the area's transportation conditions, needs, issues and goals. A short presentation will outline the study's focus, activities and schedule, as well as discuss ties to relevant previous planning work in the corridor, including at SF State and Parkmerced.
The Academic Senate will meet Tuesday from 2 to 5 p.m. in the Nob Hill Room of the Seven Hills Conference Center. An open floor period will be held from 2 to 2:10 p.m., providing an informal opportunity to raise questions or make comments to Senate officers or University administrators. The agenda will include:
