The Potrero Hill Neighborhood Transportation Plan (NTP) is the result of a community-based planning effort in the southern Potrero Hill neighborhood of San Francisco, and was funded by a California Department of Transportation Environmental Justice Planning grant and a Metropolitan Transportation Commission Community Based Transportation Planning grant. The technical team, led by the Transportation Authority, collaborated with community stakeholders to identify multimodal transportation priorities at the neighborhood scale, prioritizing near-term improvements to improve connectivity across the site and to the broader neighborhood, city, and region. The final recommendations focus on low-cost improvements that could be implemented before the site is redeveloped wholesale through the Rebuild Potrero project. Prioritized projects include pedestrian safety and transit stop enhancements, including transit bulbouts that would be built using non-infrastructure materials (i.e., construction that does not require regrading the street or moving sewer catchbasins). If successful, this innovative feature could be replicated throughout the city, bringing benefits to transit riders more quickly and cost effectively, particularly on streets that are not scheduled for near term repaving. The NTP includes complete funding plans for these enhancements, with allocations from all sources (including Lifeline Transportation Program funds from the Transportation Authority) anticipated by July 2015 and implementation anticipated by early 2016. The NTP also studied a potential shuttle route to improve access across the site and to connect residents with nearby amenities.For more information, check out the attachment and enclosure for the meeting.
