Shared Spaces in the Sunset

Author: susan

Thanks to the Sunset Beacon for coverage of Shared Spaces in the Sunset. Don’t miss the outdoor dining and shopping experiences in the neighborhood:

Beachside Taraval takes place every Sunday, with Taraval Street closed between 46th and 47th Avenues featuring artisan pop-ups and all neighborhood businesses participating.

Irving Street is closed between 19th and 20th Avenues four days per week: Thursdays and Fridays, 4-11 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays, 11 a.m.-11 p.m. 

Good news: Awadalla Awadalla, the owner of SF Hole In The Wall Pizza on Irving Street and the vice president of the Outer Sunset Merchants Association, says business increased about 15% when he set up his parklet after SF Mayor London Breed streamlined the process last June. He thinks he might be getting  another 10-15% boost on days that they close the street.

The Shared Spaces program is a collaboration between the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), the Office of Economic and Workforce Development (OEWD) and SF Supervisor Gordon Mar’s office.
