BOMA San Francisco Members Meet With San Francisco District 7 Supervisor Norman Yee

BOMA San Francisco Members,

BOMA San Francisco's Government Affairs Policy Advisory Committee (GAPAC), met with San Francisco District 7 Supervisor Norman Yee recently.  Here are the highlights from the meeting:

Supervisor Norman Yee with GAPAC Chair Horace Green
  • Children’s education/supporting families (he was former chair of the SF Board of Education)
    • Developing a Task Force to keep them in San Francisco 
  • Housing + Job Creation 
    •  Feels that the economic gap needs to be addressed 
  • Participatory budget meetings with community input 
  • Pedestrian Safety 
    • Supports Vision Zero – an SF initiative to reduce traffic deaths to zero in 10 years 
  • Street Condition 
    • 1 complaint from voters he represents.

Small Businesses
  • Very supportive
  • District 7 needs more support for local small businesses
  • Only one Community Benefit District on Ocean Avenue
    • Only two merchant associations
    • Had a summit with the SF Chamber of Commerce to address these concerns earlier in the year.
Gross Receipts Tax
  • Businesses in his district do not understand it and don’t have time, in general, to learn more about it.
BOMA San Francisco thanks Supervisor Yee for his time and public service on behalf of all San Franciscans.
