Supervisorial Candidates Debate Streets, Parks, and Public Space at Upcoming Forums and Town Hall Meetings

Walk San Francisco, the San Francisco Parks Alliance, and Friends of the Urban Forest are pleased to announce a series of  Supervisorial Candidate Forums and Town Halls focusing exclusively on the topic of the city’s public space: streets and parks.  Our goal is to ensure that strong voices for a greener, more walkable city are elected across the city’s districts.


For the first time, Supervisorial town halls and candidate forums in all odd-numbered SF districts will focus on issues of public space from streets to parks.

Residents are invited to submit their questions on pedestrian safety, sustainable transportation, trees and urban forestry, parks, recreation, open space, and greening.
