Safe and livable streets start with smart street design reflecting the needs of all users. Yesterday, the Board of Supervisors unanimously approved my legislation to adopt the official street design policies of the National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO). For San Francisco to have a more sustainable future, we need an environment that encourages and allows people to safely and enjoyably walk, bike, and use transit, in addition to driving. These new guidelines - reflecting a forward-thinking, progressive approach to urban street design - will extend San Francisco's Better Streets Policy, which focuses on sidewalks, to include the entire cross section of the street, including not only sidewalks but also travel lanes, bike lanes, and intersections.
