Green Connections Coming to Oakdale Ave

The City's Planning Department is going to be coming out the the Bayview on June 11 to ask for community feedback regarding their Green Connections plan for Oakdale Ave between Lane St and Quint. When they come out, they will be looking to ask people to prioritize things like corner "bulb-outs" (which make the crossing distance for pedestrians shorter), enhanced bike lanes and bike boxes, street trees and other green treatments on sidewalks.

The proposed ideas for Oakdale aren't quite ready to show to the public, but this graphic from their website shows where this phase of the project is located (the black line on Oakdale) and how it would be connected to others in the area (the heavy green lines) and eventually the city.

If you want to be among the first to know about what's going on with this project, you can go to http://www.sf-planning.org/index.aspx?page=3002 and look around the website, and sign up to receive updates and public meeting announcements.

Regarding the June 11 meeting for Oakdale Ave:

The Green Connections project team has developed a streetscape design to improve walking and biking on Oakdale Avenue between Joseph Lee Recreation Center and the Southeast Community Facility. The design builds on the Bayview Hunters Point Community Revitalization Concept Plan.

The City has dedicated $300,000 to pedestrian and bike improvements on Oakdale through the 2011 Road Repaving and Street Safety Bond, and is pursuing additional grant funds.

The Planning Department and the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency would like to hear from you on how to prioritize the use of this funding on Oakdale Ave. We want to understand your priorities for this street. 

If you're interested in finding out more about Green Connections, there will be a meeting this Saturday May 11 from 10-noon at the Visitacion Valley Library, 201 Leland Ave to discuss similar plans for Leland Ave.
