JFK Goes Car Free

If you haven’t heard, we won Car Free JFK. The Board of Supervisors voted today to approve the Mayor’s plan. This is a great first step in our fight against car dominance. We are energized to continue our fight for a permanent Great Walkway, car-free Valencia, Polk and better infrastructure for cyclists and people.

Public comment went on for over 9 hours and we would like to thank everyone that appeared in-person and called in. Nearly 69% of those who commented were in support of Car Free JFK.

The final vote went like:

Pro Car Free JFK

District 2 Catherine Stefani

District 4 Gordon Mar

District 5 Dean Preston

District 6 Matt Haney

District 7 Myrna Melgar

District 8 Rafael Mandelman

District 9 Hillary Ronen

Against Car Free JFK

District 1 Connie Chan

District 3 Aaron Peskin

District 10 Shamann Walton

District 11 Ahsha Safaí
