Newsom forum Saturday; McGoldrick recall fails; Bad parking ballot measure

Some miscellaneous Muni related news:

  • Mayor Newsom is holding a forum on transportation Saturday, June 30, at 10:00am at Jean Parker Elementary School, 840 Broadway at Powell. (pdf notice, details below the jump.) Come ask your tough Muni questions!
  • Proponents of a recall of Supervisor Jake McGoldrick, led by anti-Muni activist David Heller, have failed to get enough signatures to put the recall on November’s ballot. This is great news for proponents of the Geary BRT project.
  • Mayor Newsom also restated his support for stop consolidation as part of the Transit Effectiveness Project yesterday.
  • A ballot measure that would require big increases in parking in new buildings (and would be horrible for mass transit) is circulating right now. We’re with SFist: don’t sign it! (More on this at SFist or you can read the whole proposal at SPUR‘s site (pdf).

  • Details on the community meeting: Please join Mayor Gavin Newsom & members of the City’s elected family for a community discussion on transportation in San Francisco. This is an opportunity to learn about what the City is doing to improve Muni, build the Central Subway, and increase pedestrian, bicycle and traffic safety—and to share your own ideas for transportation improvements.
