Does Market Street need more public toilets?

(Mike Koozmin/The S.F. Examiner)

A group of students from Minerva University have started a petition requesting that The City install 10 new, self-cleaning, 24-hour public restrooms on Market Street. As of Monday morning, the petition was 24 signatures short of its 15,000 signature goal.

“Doing some research into public restrooms around San Francisco reveals that, though there are a significant number of public restrooms [in the city itself], in the areas most affected by homelessness, there are few to none,” freshman Zane Sand wrote on the Care2 petition’s website.”Being homeless means a lack of consistent access to restrooms, and often being turned away at customer only establishments for which they do not have the money. This can result in public urination/defection and inadequate personal hygiene, to which everyone should have a right.”

The petition will be forwarded to San Francisco’s Department of Public Works once the 15,000 signatures have been collected.care2Market Streetminerva universityTenderlointoilet
