Citizens Against Public Transit (Proposed Bus Routes in Douglasville)

We, the citizens who have signed the petition, are against a bus service in Douglas County and Douglasville.  Douglas County cannot afford to run this bus service.  It will increase crime.  The taxpayers will have to pay for it.  Property taxes will more than likely be increased in order to pay for it.  It will cost $3 MILLION a year to run two small bus lines in Douglasville, a city who does not want the bus service.  Someone has told me they have an inside source--a county official--who says annual costs will be $5 million per year.  It has also been reported by the Douglas County Sentinel that there is a budget shortfall of $11.9 MILLION for the 2018 budget.  See the 2018 Proposed Budget here:  http://www.celebratedouglascounty.com/newsupload/2017/10/2017103107302719/2018_Budget_-_for_Website.pdf Transportation is already provided for those who are elderly and disabled and need to get around.  Transportation is already provided via GRTA to get commuters to Atlanta.  Rideshare vans are available at park and ride lots throughout the county.  Taxi service, UBER, and Lyft are available here.  The bus service will cause more traffic as it will be making frequent stops throughout the city on streets that are too narrow to accommodate them, streets that need to be widened and resurfaced due to many potholes.  Show the county that a bus service is not needed by signing this petition. More about the bus service at http://www.celebratedouglascounty.com/ConnectDouglas/  Notice it says at the bottom that "operating costs are still being determined".

Petition to Ford GoBike, Katy Tang, Norman Yee, London Breed, Sandra Lee-Fewer

Bring bikeshare to the entire Sunset District!

The Sunset District is one of the most bikeable areas in San Francisco. Bikeshare in our neighborhood would be immensely popular, beneficial, and useful. However, there is no planned GoBike expansion for bikeshare in the majority of the Sunset District. Bikeshare is a green, affordable, and healthy transportation alternative to driving or even public transit. This type of infrastructure would allow folks in the Sunset to get around the neighborhood and the city without the hassle of car ownership, freeing up limited street parking and increasing foot traffic to our local businesses. Properly located around the main Muni transit lines (N-Judah, L-Taraval, 7-Noriega), bike routes (Kirkham St, Ortega St, Vicente St, etc.), and arteries (19th Avenue, Sunset Boulevard, Great Highway, Sloat Boulevard, etc.), bikeshare stations could fill most public transportation coverage gaps. With the planned bikeshare expansion to the Richmond District in 2018, bikeshare in the Sunset would provide more links between the two sides of Golden Gate Park. Bikeshare in the Sunset would also make our schools, parks, playgrounds, and popular landmarks more accessible to Sunset neighbors and visitors. Residents would have an easy way to visit neighborhood attractions like the San Francisco Zoo, Ocean Beach, the Beach Chalet, and the Tiled Steps. Our low-income neighbors can also benefit from this program thanks to the “Bikeshare For All” option that provides one year of membership for only $5. Riding a bike is fun, convenient, and sustainable. Please bring bikeshare to the entire Sunset District!

The proposal would allow our city to house more people in the blocks surrounding the new light rail station opening in 2021 at NE 43rd St. and Brooklyn Ave NE. The proposal would also implement new affordable housing and open space requirements, as well as incentives for childcare, historic preservation, and street improvements. Learn more about the U District Urban Design Changes here:  The City of Seattle identified the following as the framework for these changes: Recognize light rail as a catalyst for change Balance the regional influences with the eclectic local character Provide a network of great streets and public spaces Grow and diversify jobs Welcome a diversity of residents Improve public safety Encourage quality and variety in the built environment Build an environmentally sustainable neighborhood Improve integration between UW and the U District Support walking, biking, and transit In addition to signing this petition it is important that you write to Seattle City Council today!
