Improving Health Care Services
Supervisor Campos joins the nation's focus on reforming our health care system by introducing legislation to revive planning tools that were once vibrant in the State of California before former Governor Ronald Regan dismantled the responsible agency. The legislation directs the Department of Public Health to create a Health Care Services Master Plan that analyzes the current availability and location of health care services in San Francisco and makes policy recommendations to ensure an equitable and efficient distribution of those services. In addition, the legislation will require the planning department to review future land use applications by medical institutions for their consistency with the Health Care Services Master Plan's goals and priorities. The legislation will be heard at the Planning Commission on October 28, 2010 at 1:30 p.m. in City Hll, Room 400.  The agenda will be posted on the Commission website in October.
"Please Do Not Jump" Day
Recognizing that 85,000 Californians make suicide attempts each year and that 30 San Francisco Bay Area residents jump off the Golden Gate Bridge each year, the Board of Supervisors passed Supervisor Campos' resolution promoting suicide prevention and public health solutions.  The resolution acknowledges September 22, 2010 as "Please Don't Jump" Day and urges the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway, and Transportation District to continue its efforts to expeditiously construct a suicide barrier on the Golden Gate Bridge.  Read more about it in this article.

South Mission Historic Resources Survey
The San Francisco Planning Department has recently completed a survey of historic resources in the southern Mission (see the map for the survey boundaries). The Department welcomes your input on the survey materials, including factual corrections. No action is required of you, and there are no changes to the permitted uses or zoning of your property as a result of the survey.
The purpose of a survey is to identify and evaluate properties that appear to be historic resources eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places and/or California Register of Historical Resources. For more information on specific properties, please go to the website for this project.  The website also contains information on what this survey means to property owners and the public.
The Planning Department will be holding two community meetings to receive your input and answer questions regarding the surveys. These meetings will be as follows:
Meeting 1:
Wednesday, September 22, 2010
at Cesar Chavez School - 825 Shotwell Street (between 22nd & 23 Streets)
Meeting 2:
Saturday, September 25, 2010
at Cesar Chavez School - 825 Shotwell Street (between 22nd & 23 Streets)
Fact Sheet Mini ImageSan Francisco Transportation Plan
The San Francisco Transportation Plan (SFTP) is the City's 25-year plan to identify goals, needs, and investment priorities for our transportation system. It will help shape the next generation of transportation projects and enhancements to improve the way people travel in and around San Francisco.
The plan will be a blueprint for the Transportation Authority's program of projects and studies, with the goal of improving mobility and accessibility for the people of San Francisco while preserving the City's unique character. It's about improving transportation options in your neighborhood, for your business, and on your street - for a healthier, livelier San Francisco.
The SFTP planning process began this summer and continues over the next 17 months to two years. Write to us at and tell us what you think! For more information and updates, visit the SFTP website.
