San Francisco community leaders and planners will meet today to brainstorm on Market Street’s future at a lunchtime forum.
Event planners referred to Market Street as “a critical artery where much of the city’s transit infrastructure comes together” in a statement.
Organizers said they are hoping today’s forum will help launch ideas for ways the street can be transformed from a transit hub to a destination location.
Representatives from the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, the San Francisco County Transportation Authority, the city’s Planning Department, the Department of Public Works, and the Bicycle Coalition are expected to attend today’s lunchtime event, organizers said.
Today’s forum is hosted by the nonprofit SPUR–or, the San Francisco Planning and Urban Research Association.
The event is free to SPUR members and $5 for non-members. It is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. at 654 Mission St. in San Francisco.
