Green group seeks tourism impact study to identify impact on communities’ economies
The American Lung Association of California (ALA) has sent a letter to the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency requesting a study of the economic impact on the local economies of the approximately 1,500 miles of freeways that bisect San Francisco, Richmond, Oakland a카지노 사이트nd San Mateo counties, based on findings from a study commissioned by the city earlier thisgospelhitz year.
The letter asked that the review process include not only how much impgospelhitzact tourism could have on tourism-related economic development in the Bay Area but also how much of the city’s overall economic impact can be attributed to that kind of activity. ALA estimates that it would result in nearly $2 billion in potential annual economic impacts in San Francisco.
“San Francisco must be clear that no city can truly meet its economic needs while cutting the traffic that comes to and from its downtown business districts,” said David Harris, executive director of ALA’s San Francisco office. “These traffic restrictions have no place in this effort to create a region’s economic engine.”
In June, ALA asked SFMTA to provide a preliminary traffic impact analysis so that it can conduct its own study in September, after which it hopes to send its request to the city’s Transportation Committee for consideration.
