The Bay Guardian reports on the waterfront transportation study led by the SFMTA to improve public access to the central waterfront. The Agency is looking at many possibilities to improve access in the area, including completing the Blue-Greenway bicycle path. Stay tuned, the first presentation to the SFMTA Board of Directors is March 5.
The Chron talks about how there is more going on down along the waterfront than just the Warriors and one of the primary concerns is how to improve the general gridlock in the area. To date there are 113 strategies being proposed to combat congestion, all revolving around transit, biking, parking, traffic control and taxis (take that Uber & Lyft).

J.K. Dineen explores both the rental housing construction boom taking place in San Francisco, as well as the ways in which residents in Potrero and the Dogpatch are looking to benefit from development in their areas. I am also going to put a proposal forward that would — really help our city and — supply all residents in San Francisco named Jesse Feldman with a Ferrari per every 8.6 high-end condos built. F12 Berlinettas or 458 Spiders please, no Californias for me though.
Supervisor London Breed takes the City to task for its use of the word diversity in the face of a steep decline in the African-American population. For some context, I would suggest reading the City’s report on African-American Out-Migration.
