Participatory Governance

Together, we make San Francisco beautiful.

This city has a unique character because it’s full of unique characters! Your participation and involvement in community organizations and the public process makes all the difference.

From PTAs to park groups, neighborhood associations and synagogues, political clubs and sports leagues – San Franciscans know how to build community. Our public process welcomes your involvement, and our public spaces are better for it.

Do you have a voice?

We fight for good government, local planning, community-centered design, and citizen oversight. Have something to contribute? We want you!

Together we make SF beautiful by:

  • Finding funds for community-led neighborhood improvements.
  • Ensuring citizen oversight.
