Urban Intervention on Market & 6th

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!

    Hey everyone, we're still ironing out the details, and would love to hear your ideas - what type of creative 1-day programming would you implement on 6th St. (between Market & Mission) to engage the community and make 6th Street safer?

    I have a number of SFA historical whitepapers of proposed projects to offer to the group as seed material for inspiration. I will upload a file to the "Files" tab nested under the "More" tab if anyone asks.

    Love the NYC connection. Did my social action internship in Harlem in the early 80's. Carried it forward with the ideal of the Sustainable Future Association since then. Details are buried in my LinkedIn profile.
