|Next Phase of Reopening Paused|
|Mayor Breed announced last week that San Francisco is experiencing a concerning increase in local COVID-19 cases, and as a result will be temporarily delaying the reopening of certain businesses and activities scheduled to be allowed to resume on Monday, June 29th.|
These include: hair salons and barber shops, nail salons, tattoo salons, museums, zoos, outdoor bars, and outdoor swimming. There is no change to businesses and activities currently allowed under prior reopening phases.
While I understand this may be frustrating for many, my colleagues and I will continue to support our public health experts, including our County Health Officer Dr. Tomás Aragón, as they lead us through this pandemic.
More information about San Francisco’s phased reopening is available at sf.gov/reopening
|Essential Worker Week|

Westside Youth Budget QuestionnaireThe Westside representatives on the San Francisco Youth Commission are looking to hear from the youth of the Westside on the issues you face in your daily life, and what you would like to see the City government do on your behalf. While we had to cancel our planned Westside Youth Forum, we are looking to hear directly about your needs as youth in San Francisco through this questionnaire. Your comments will be passed on to your local representatives in City Hall during the upcoming budget process.|
This questionnaire is focused particularly on the experiences and needs of youth (ages 12 to 25) who live, go to school, or work in the Westside, which includes Districts 1, 4, and 7. We welcome and appreciate any comments about your experience as a young person or student in San Francisco.Fire Preparedness Town HallHousing Element 2022 UpdateThe two-year process for the Housing Element 2022 Update launched with an informational presentation at the Planning Commission. Both the Commission and the public comment offered support and guidance, and emphasized being bold in our policies centered in racial and social equity.Communities across the country are in protest against police brutality, catalyzed by the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, amongst many others. These acts of resistance are about broader institutional racism affecting the lives of Black and Indigenous communities, and other communities of color.
The San Francisco Planning Department acknowledges our role in perpetuating past and current racial harm. The Housing Element 2022 Update will include policies that promote racial and social equity for these communities.Policy is a reflection of a community’s vision and values, which in turn, influences our city’s culture. We particularly want to elevate the voices of those that have been most impacted by historically discriminatory housing policies including low income residents and people of color. Our goal is that in doing so, we can change San Francisco’s culture of exclusion to one that is more inclusive, equitable and just.Bring your voice into this process; here are some of the outreach tools that you can already engage in:Give feedback on five categories of key ideas on our digital participation platformCall (415-644-5891) or email us your general commentsWebinars and virtual discussions will be organized soon; we will send an update once they become available.中文詢問請電: (415) 575-9010
