April 2019

CHA Residents,

Thank you to those that attended and for all your emails to the SF Planning Commission opposing SB 50 - they were heard.  The Planning Department is now doing further analysis on the impacts of SB 50 in light of the detailed concerns expressed by the public.  There were approximately 100 residents at the hearing and nearly 85% stated their opposition; and the others who support SB 50 were primarily from the  YIMBY organization who are the original authors of the legislation.

What's Next ...
San Francisco Resolution Opposing SB 50
"Resolution opposing California State Senate Bill No. 50, authored by Senator Scott Wiener, which would undermine community participation in planning for the well-being of the environment and the public good, prevent the public from recapturing an equitable portion of the economic benefits conferred to private interests, and significantly restrict San Francisco's ability to protect vulnerable communities from displacement and gentrification, unless further amended."  ( See full Resolution)

San Francisco Supervisors and Mayor need to hear from you  
Where do you stand on SB 50?   Let them know before they vote.   If San Francisco Supervisors approve a resolution that opposes SB 50, it sends a very clear message to Senator Wiener.  He was elected to represent his constituents (SF and parts of Daly City) and yet again and again, he puts forth this and other bills that undermine the City and his constituents.  

Three Ways to Voice Your Opinion

1.  Attend SF Supervisor Committee Hearing
 This Thursday, 4/4/19 at  City Hall, Room 250, est. start time of 11am*

2. Attend District 2 Supervisor Stefani's Town Hall
This Sunday, 4/7/19 at  Recreation Center, Moscone Playground
Time TBD (will send update)

3. Email or call the Supervisors and the Mayor
Very important for Supervisor Stefani 
to know your position!
Repurpose the ones sent to the Commissioners
* The Supervisor Committee Hearing starts at 10am and the Resolution to Oppose SB 50 is agenda item #5 so we estimate that will be heard around 11am.  If it passes the committee, it will go before the full board likely next week, but only at this committee hearing are public comments allowed. 

Here is a link to a map where you type in your address and it identifies if you are within SB 50's upzoning reach -

Also, this weekend organizations across the city went door to door to pass out a postcard that informs residents on SB 50 and gives details on who to contact - below is the front and back of the postcard.

We are not simply in a housing crisis, we are in an affordability crisis
