Fun with Urban Planning

Planning for streetscape improvements on Polk Street has sucked up two years and a staggering 60 meetings, and city officials are hopeful that the plan they present on Friday will finally win over the public. Elements of the plan include safety improvements like pedestrian bulb-outs, painted bike lanes, and new landscaping, but groups like the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition continue to say that the plan falls short of their expectations and doesn't do enough to protect cyclists. Meanwhile, businesses continue to worry about cuts to parking on the street, which stands to lose 250 spots. [SFGate]
