The Planning Department is preparing the required environmental review for the forthcoming proposals related to improving Market Street into something hopefully the city can be proud of. The Better Market Street initiatives seek to enhance mobility ad reduce conflicts along Market Street, primarily by restricting private vehicle access, which is supported by the city’s long-standing Transit First Policy. Physical upgrades will likely entail new pavers and pedestrian amenities as part of a refreshed urban design concept for the city’s most important civic thoroughfare. It’s been busted for so long, I’d argue that some public investment and some urban love can only do Market Street, particularly its maligned mid-section a world of good.
