Keep The Park
Now that the highway is closed to vehicles, people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities are using this new public space to exercise and enjoy the clean ocean air.
The global pandemic has provided a unique opportunity to enact change. Many cities are realizing the importance of increasing vehicle-free, open urban space.
Safer, Slower Streets
Traffic and safety on the lower Great Highway and outer Avenues have been a major concern for years. Our goals are to redirect north-south commuters, improve pedestrian safety and limit traffic to locals and patrons of neighborhood attractions.
Better for Business
On a nice day, an estimated 10,000 additional people head to the Outer Sunset because of the Park - many by bike, scooter, or public transit, all of whom would enjoy a bite, a coffee, or perusing a shop.
Better for the Community
Since the closure began in March 2020, this safe open recreation space has been used in so many diverse ways -- imagine how we can use it in the future.
I join with my neighbors in support of making the Great Highway a full-time oceanfront park that our entire community can enjoy every day.
SIGN THE PETITION
Such a public good and benefit for the neighborhood and city. I can’t help but smile every time I walk down Great Highway.
