SPUR: Reenvisioning the Planning Commission

Share

Location:
SPUR Urban Center
654 Mission Street
San Francisco, CA 94105-4015

Reenvisioning the Planning Commission

Planning commissions across the country advise elected officials and municipal departments on the appropriate growth and development of their cities. But complaints about these bodies and the processes that they undertake can be extensive — from regularly scheduled hearings that are all but inaccessible to the public due to location and timing, to politically appointed commissioners not accurately representing the city whose growth they oversee. How could the planning commission process be improved? Join us for a series of rapid-fire presentations about the tweaks, evolutions and transformations that planning commissions could undertake to better suit the needs of today’s cities and their residents. Co-presented by YIMBY Action and the San Francisco Housing Action Coalition.
