Update on Health Care Services Master Plan Legislation
Supervisor Campos continues to fight to create a process and tools to ensure greater equity and access of health care services for all San Francisco residents. The legislation requires the Departments of Public Health and Planning to create a Health Care Services Master Plan that analyzes the Health Care Services that currently exist in San Francisco, the projected health care services needs of San Francisco residents, and identifies gaps in services including specific barriers to accessing services including language, race, immigration status, gender identity, and public assistance. Once the Health Care Service Master Plan in adopted by the Board of Supervisors, medical institutions that seek to build or expand in San Francisco, must show that their project meets the actual health care service needs of San Franciscans. 
Revitalizing Bayshore Boulevard
Over the past year, key City departments have organized three community workshops to develop an Economic Action Plan to revitalize Bayshore Boulevard. As you may know, Bayshore Boulevard forms part of the Bayview Redevelopment Area, and lies within both Districts 9 (Supervisor David Campos) and 10 (Supervisor Sophie Maxwell).

Supervisor Campos has been working to ensure that the Plan addresses the needs and concerns of District 9 residents.  In particular, we have heard you say that you want support for existing businesses to thrive and new businesses to grow; jobs that draw from our local workforce; coordination with the San Francisco Day Laborer Program; a traffic circulation plan and efforts to address parking; and increased safety along the corridor.
As part of the planning process, the City is considering zoning changes that set the parameters for the types of businesses allowed on the corridor. These changes will be considered at the Planning Commission on Thursday, November 18 at 1:30pm in City Hall Room 400, and at the Board of Supervisors' Land Use and Economic Development Committee on Monday, November 22 at 1:00pm in City Hall Room 250.

SF Arts Commission presents: StreetSmARTs

before and after with mural

StreetSmARTS mural program connects established urban artists with private property owners to create vibrant art and make the property less likely to be vandalized.
SFAC created a pool of established urban artists.

Participating private property owners may select an artist from that pool to create an original mural on their property, aligning with the neighborhood's aesthetic.

Artists who are interested in participating in the next round of StreetSmARTS should sign up for the CAE e-Newsletter to be notified of the call for artists. Property owners who are interested in having a mural placed on one of your exterior walls should contact Tyra Fennell at 415-252-2597 or e-mail Priority will be given to properties in Chinatown, Bayview, Bernal Heights, Mission, Tenderloin, and Central Market neighborhoods, which are close to Where Art Lives school sites.

Free Bicycle Lights!
free bicycle lights
The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), which oversees all surface transportation in the City, and the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition (SFBC) are teaming up to give out free bicycle lights and safety information as part of their "Light up the Night" campaign.
A white front light and red rear reflector (or light) are required by law when riding at night, yet some cyclists either cannot afford lights or are not aware of the law. The "Light up the Night" campaign will target these cyclists by issuing free lights and talking with them about the importance of always using lights at night.
