Proposals In Progress For Streetscape Improvements At Masonic & Geary

By Nuala Sawyer - Published on June 22, 2014.
Street safety on Masonic has been a topic of discussion for the past few years, especially as a cyclist was killed at Masonic and Geary in 2010, and a pedestrian was killed at Geary and Euclid in 2012.
According to statistics from the San Francisco Bike Coalition, 122 people have been injured on an area of Masonic that spans only two-thirds of a mile since 2008. Used by many as a north/south artery, the street is home to high-speed traffic while at the same time being largely residential. 

This Thursday, June 26th, there will be public meeting and open house presented as an exhibition of Masonic-focused artwork and design at the SF Day School.  The show covers a proposed "public art element" to go along with the already approved structural changes.

Hosted by the San Francisco Arts Commission, the exhibition will be open for public review and comments at the SF Day School, Golden Gate lobby, from June 23 (that's tomorrow!) through July 9. The hours are Monday through Friday, 8am to 4pm, and Saturdays from 9am to 4pm.  If you can't make it in person, you can also find the proposals on their website.

What changes would you like made to Masonic, and why? Share your thoughts in the comments.

Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that the exhibition would center on changes to the Masonic streetscape. Instead the exhibition will focus solely on the public art element of the project.
