Improving the Lombard Street Neighborhood
San Francisco's famous Lombard Street sees more than two million visitors a year. The crowds and traffic congestion have become too much for the neighborhood, especially during the summer months. The problem has increasingly become a public safety issue and is negatively affecting the quality of life for area residents.
In order to manage the number of vehicles coming to the neighborhood, I've introduced AB 1605, which gives the City and County of San Francisco the authority to pilot a Reservation and Pricing System - much like we've seen implemented at Muir Woods. This is something the local Transportation Authority recommended after an exhaustive study and several community meetings. Neither the presence of parking enforcement officers, nor the closure of the crooked segment has improved the current situation. AB 1605 offers another solution worth trying and has the unanimous backing of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.
If it's signed in to law later this year, local leaders will have to iron out details, such as how it will be implemented and what to charge drivers. The proposal has momentum after receiving approval this week by the Assembly Transportation Committee. I am working to get this bill to the Governor as soon as possible.
