The BART Board of Directors addressed the status of the 16th Street/Mission Street Plaza at today’s meeting.
According to the SF Examiner (http://www.sfexaminer.com/bart-quadruple-power-washing-mission-street-stations/), the BART Board of Directors addressed the status of the 16th Street/Mission Street Plaza at today’s meeting.

"Some consternation arose from the homeless community when BART removed benches at 16th Street station during cleaning efforts in September.

Dufty, however, delivered some more news Thursday directly addressing those concerns — the benches will return Nov. 1, he said.

'BART staff knows this is important to me and Supervisor Hillary Ronen,' Dufty wrote on Facebook. 'My values would not allow the removal of seating areas from people who are vulnerable or just needing a place to sit.'”

Once again, here is the contact information for the elected officials for the 16th Street/Mission Street Plaza:

BART Director Bevan Dufty–510-464-6095, bevan.dufty [at] bart.gov

SF Supervisor Hillary Ronen–415-554-5144, Hillary.Ronen [at] sfgov.org

In addition, the most relevant BART staff person is Molly Burke, molly.burke [at] bart.gov
