Tell the Board of Supervisors to insist that the SFMTA reverse the decision to extend parking meter hours on evenings and Sundays.
What District do you live in?
Message to the Board of Supervisors, Mayor Breed, Mr. Tumlin, and SFMTA Board
Dear Supervisors, Mayor Breed, Mr. Tumlin and SFMTA Board Members, I write to oppose the plan to extend parking meter hours and to support the Board of Supervisors' resolution 230587. Extending meter hours will negatively impact local businesses, discourage out-of-town visitors and add financial stress to local residents who already feel the instability and impact of an impending recession. San Franciscans and tourists visit neighborhood business districts in the evenings to relax, unwind, and share a meal with their loved ones. Expanded parking meter hours will burden potential customers (especially seniors, the disabled, and families) with an additional cost, detracting from their overall enjoyment and inhibiting them from such activities. Meter hours until 10pm will materially impact restaurant and retail workers who will be feeding meters and spending 2 to 3 times more on parking. Many service employees live outside San Francisco, and public transportation is frequently not an option. If we want to boost our local economy and revitalize restaurants and tourist areas, we need to incentivize evening and Sunday customers, take care of workers, and not pile on additional costs at a time when rents and the price of food and necessary items are already so high. I sincerely hope the Board of Supervisors votes to reject this plan. Please consider the needs of our local businesses and residents, as well as the overall interests of San Francisco. Thank you for your careful consideration of this matter.
