With up to $8 million available for the design and construction of neighborhood priorities such as sidewalks and safety improvements in this first of three cycles, the NSF Program offers a great opportunity for communities to shape their transportation environment. Eligible projects qualify if they meet the following criteria:
· Large, but not too large (generally between $100,000 and $1 million to design and construct)
· Related to transportation
· Located within SDOT right-of-way (city streets and sidewalks)
· Have the support of their local neighborhood District Council
Past projects have included: new sidewalk construction, sidewalk repair, curb bulbs and intersection redesign, pedestrian lighting and plazas/festival streets.
