Radical Idea: Greening The Wiggle
The Wiggle is a San Francisco bike route that zig-zags through the Lower Haight, Alamo Square, and Duboce Park. Activists and community groups have been trying to improve the corridor for years. Their work has led to more "sharrows," green painted bike lanes, on the pavement and most recently an $80-million greening project proposal for The Wiggle Corridor. The plans being considered by the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission and the Municipal Transit Agency include rain gardens that capture storm water, permeable paving and improved bike lane safety measures. That's a good start to Wigg Party founder Morgan Fitzgibbons. In his ideal world, the city would go a lot further -- as we hear in this Radical Idea from the Crosscurrents archives.
