URBAN SPACEship is teaming up with SPUR, the SFMTA, District 6 Supervisor's Office, Twitter and Neighborland for Safer 6th Street - a collaborative project to address the issue of safety in the 6th Street corridor, and gather further input from the local community as to what can be done to create a safer area for residents, workers and passersby alike.
There is an on-going community process to implement safety measures in the 6th Street corridor, including The Sixth Street Improvement Project led by SFMTA, District 6 Pedestrian Safety Workgroup, activation projects led by the Mayor’s Office of Economic Workforce and Development, and the recent establishment of The Sixth Street Safety Hub, an SFPD sub-station.
In alignment with this process, we ask - how can we, as a community, create a safer 6th Street?
On Saturday, May 18th, between 12-6pm we will be hosting an interactive activation project on 6th Street (between Market and Stevenson), to engage the community and gather ideas and feedback towards this question, with the aim of envisioning a vibrant area and helping to prioritize treatments to the 6th Street design.
Pick your medium - we’ll have a Neighborland board for you to freely write on, a Twitter photo booth, and a collaborative mural installed by ArtIsMobilus.
Until then, share your ideas and comment on others here or on Twitter using the hashtag #Safer6th. Through a new integrated platform between Neighborland and Twitter, your tweets will display on the Question page. Any tweets that start with "I want ..." and contain the hashtag will auto-magically become ideas on the Question page.
Come join and take part in creating action on the ground!
