A MORE LIVABLE SAN FRANCISCO FOR ALL
On May 5, Sunday Streets is thrilled to present the first annual Bayview Faith Festival at Carroll Avenue, bringing faith communities together for a day of service, worship, praise, and celebration during Sunday Streets Bayview/Dogpatch, with a car-free route on Third Street from 22nd Street to Carroll Avenue.
In an increasingly competitive San Francisco – where we all must compete for jobs, seats on the bus or at a cafe, on our sidewalks as pedestrians, and especially for housing (indeed, for space itself), open streets programs create a non-competitive environment.
Sunday Streets brings car-free fun to the Tenderloin and Civic Center on April 14
Open streets programs are a powerful way of modeling a car-free future – exposing people not just to what human-scale public space looks like, but what sustainable transportation feels like.
Human beings have been carving roads and paths for eons, but it’s easy to forget that cars are quite new. Before automobiles, roads were shared spaces – open to pedestrians, vendors and modes of transport like horses and buggies.
