Winter Walk 2019

Dear ISCOTT Committee Members,
As a stakeholder in the Union Square area, I respectfully request ISCOTT approve the USBID’s application to close Maiden Lane and Grant Avenue between Geary and Post Streets to all vehicular traffic from November 25, 2019 through January 3, 2020 for Winter Walk 2019.
Winter Walk is an annual, award-wining, holiday tradition for San Francisco and the greater Bay Area, which drew 2.2 million visitors last year. This grand event brings increased pedestrian traffic to our stores and positive activity to our streets. The additional security with the event also makes the Union Square area safer for all to enjoy.
I am highly supportive of the USBID’s Winter Walk 2019 on Maiden Lane and Grant Avenue. Last year, Winter Walk attendees spent an estimated $47 million in Union Square. This means more business for our stores and tax revenue for the City.
I respectfully request ISCOTT approve the USBID’s application for Winter Walk 2019.
