I am writing to inform you that the SFMTA has launched community perception surveys for the Slow Streets on Excelsior Avenue and Somerset Street.
Over the next month, the SFMTA wants to hear from residents and community members about their thoughts on the Slow Streets, what’s working, what’s not working, and to provide input on their future. Interested community members can access the surveys via scanning the QR codes or accessing the links below:
Access the Excelsior Avenue Survey:
Access the Somerset Street Survey:
The surveys will be live until about early to mid-April.
The SFMTA announced and implemented the Slow Streets program back in mid-April 2020. Streets designated as a Slow Street aim to limit and reduce through traffic and encourage slower vehicles speeds. This creates a street that is calmer and safer for shared usage in the middle of the road by people walking, biking, exercising, or driving. For more information on the Slow Streets Program, please visit SFMTA.com/SlowStreets.
We’re also looking for help from community partners and organizations with survey promotion and communications. The message above can be included in email blasts to your stakeholder network, or even as a blurb in newsletters and social media posts.
We appreciate any help you can provide to promote these surveys. Let me know if you have any questions about them or the Slow Streets Program.
