Market Street between Danvers Street and Douglass Street.
This area of Market St. is a traffic artery and has a 30 MPH speed limit. It is a high collision and accident area where people are hit and homes, and cars see frequent damaged. It is also a residential area with homes ranging from single family, two unit to small apartment buildings. There is a community garden at Storrie St
The residents have applied for the SFMTA traffic calming program in 2014 with no response from the SFMTA. We are applying again in July 2015. Since San Francisco adopted Vision Zero where the recommended Speed limit is 25 MPH, we are hopeful that the city will implement measures to slow down the traffic and reduce traffic incidents in this area. Our ask is to:
The SFMTA will evaluate the need for traffic calming on a block-by-block basis; a separate application must be submitted for any adjacent blocks. Please define your block:

To be considered for traffic calming, you must obtain signatures from 20* distinct addresses on your block, using the petition form attached. One signature is allowed per address.
Signatures are required as part of the application process to ensure community support before the planning process begins. If your block is selected for traffic calming, residents on your block will be given the opportunity to vote on a speed hump or other traffic calming measure that is recommended by SFMTA staff.
*If there are fewer than 40 addresses on your block, please obtain signatures from half of them.
Community Contacts (Optional)
Please use the attached sheet to provide the names, addresses, and primary contact information for any schools, community centers or senior centers on your block, and list any parks or playgrounds.
