Wednesday, January 4, 6 PM – Details
1455 Market St., 22nd Floor – Geary BRT Citizens Advisory Committee – Geary CAC is scheduled to hear and vote on the Geary BRT.
Thursday, January 5, 2 PM – Details
Room 250 City Hall, Special Transportation Authority Board Meeting Details This is where the Board of Supervisors, acting as the County is expected to approve the $350-360 million dollar Geary BRT large project authorization, before the public or the Board of Supervisors has sufficient time to review and analyze the large document that was just released on the 15th of December. CEQA still allows a 30 day period for public review and comment, so this will cut that allowance down, leading, once again to a violation of CEQA by the SFMTA and almost certain filing of an appeal. SFMTA will have an excuse for fast-tracking their Geary BRT, so we need as many letters and people to protest against this outrage at this meeting as possible. Sample letter: https://discoveryink.wordpress.com/letters-and-comments/geary-brt/ There is a second excellent letter requesting a delay here: 122816-peskin-postpone requesting that the Chairman of the SFCTA Board of Commissioners, Aaron Peskin, postpone the Geary BRT EIR vote for one month. Quite a few letters have gone out with that request.
