Pedmount News Rack Zones were established in 2002 throughout downtown San Francisco, South of Market and in Northbeach. Beginning in 2009, pedmount zones were established throughout the city on residential commercial corridors including, 24th Street in Noe Valley, West Portal, Irving and Taraval. Once a fixed pedestal zone is completed and the new racks are installed, all free standing news racks must be removed. Free standing racks are not allowed within pedestal zones. For more information about Fixed Pedestal Zones or about free standing news racks, please call 415-554-5810.
