The San Francisco Board of Supervisors on May 14 unanimously passed a resolution to rename Gilbert Street to Jeff Adachi Way.
Gilbert Street, located between Brannan and Bryant streets, runs parallel to Sixth and Seventh streets and is directly behind the San Francisco Public Defender’s Office.
The resolution, introduced by Supervisor Matt Haney, calls for the Department of Public Works to rename the street and the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency to install a new sign with “Jeff Adachi Way” written in larger font and “Gilbert Street”? in smaller font.
After five years, the SFMTA could create a new sign with just the new name.
