New Livable Streets Campaign Transforms Worst Potholes into Coi Ponds
The SF Society of Urban Ichthyologists has launched a new campaign to urge City leaders to transform San Francsico's worst potholes into more attractive Coi Ponds. The largest potholes would be filled with water and locally farmed Coi to create more beautiful and peaceful streets. The beautification is also expected to attract more bicyclists, pedestrians and fisherman to our city streets. The SFBC applauds this innovative traffic calming measure, and supports the multiple uses of our cratered streets until a permanent fix is brought forward.
Seriously...Join our monthly Good Roads Pothole Ride this Saturday, April 4th, when pothole patrols will be leading a special edition "Park to Park" ride. We will start at the bike-friendly Duboce Park Cafe at 10am and head through the Richmond District to mark every pothole, crack, and trench we see. After our work smoothing San Francisco streets is done, we'll pick up picnic goodies and venture over to the SFBC's potluck in Golden Gate Park for the kick-off of Healthy Saturdays, car-free space in Golden Gate Park. Visit sfbike.org/goodroads for more information. Heavy rain cancels.
Details: Saturday, April 4th. Meet at 10am outside Duboce Park Cafe (Duboce + Sanchez).
