Closed streets have polarized San Francisco
The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) and the Recreation and Parks Department collaborated to close a 1.5-mile stretch of JFK Drive plus the Upper Great Highway to vehicles. It's not until their permanent use is up for discussion...
That's what happens when there's a lack of leadership. The JFK Promenade, the Great Walkway, and Slow Streets are overwhelmingly popular, but many supervisors refuse to commit, empowering a small number of hard-line motorists unable to imagine a more livable city.
