|L To R: Cindy Wu and Tom Maguire|
BOMA San Francisco Members:
BOMA's Government Affairs Committee members have been meeting with public officials recently to represent your interests. Here is a brief update of the last two meetings with special guest speakers representing the San Francisco Planning Commission and the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA).
Commissioner Wu was appointed in 2012 by Board of Supervisors Chair, David Chiu. BOMA's recent meeting with Wu was a unique opportunity for BOMA members to get to know Commissioner Wu and ask questions about San Francisco land use policies and much more. Indeed, the open dialogue allowed for Commissioner Wu to understand BOMA and the commercial real estate industry and an understanding that BOMA is available as a resource for the Commission regarding industry data.

About the Planning Commission
The Planning Commission consists of seven members - appointed by the Mayor and the President of the Board of Supervisors - who help plan for growth and development in San Francisco. Members of the Planning Commission provide an invaluable service to the city: they advise the Mayor, Board of Supervisors and City departments on San Francisco's long-range goals, policies and programs on a broad array of issues related to land use, transportation, and current planning. Additionally, the Commission has specific responsibility for the stewardship and maintenance of San Francisco's General Plan.
