Community Survey Results
The San Francisco Department of Public Works (DPW) presented three possible median designs for the Fifth and Kirkham traffic-calming project at UCSF’s August 24 community meeting. UCSF and DPW distributed neighbor surveys for feedback on the design concepts at the community meeting, and UCSF also notified neighbors of the survey through our neighborhood list-serve.
The survey results showed overwhelming support for the median at the intersection of Fifth and Kirkham to be comprised of San Francisco cobblestones. The finished median will look similar to the design below:

Second Community Meeting (February 20, 2013)
Community Meeting (August 29, 2012)
A community meeting was held on August 29, 2012, and was attended by 40 neighbors. Fehr & Peers presented the neighbors’ intersection changes, as well as revisions to them, that both Fehr & Peers & SFMTA felt might better serve the neighborhood.
Concerns from the Fifth & Kirkham neighbors included:
- Pedestrian safety at the intersection and adjacent blocks
- Lack of observance of stop signs in all directions, particularly east on Kirkham turning left to go north on Fifth Avenue, and south on Fifth turning right to go west on Kirkham Street
- The speed of cars on both Kirkham and Fifth
- Increased cut-through traffic due to reconfiguration of Seventh Avenue, and implementation of traffic-calming measures on nearby streets

UCSF is engaged in a variety of ongoing projects designed to enhance the campus and medical center, and better serve both patients and the greater community. When we embark on any project, planning always includes engagement with the local community.
