BOMA San Francisco Advocacy Leaders Meet with Supervisor Jane Kim

BOMA San Francisco Members:

BOMA's Government Affairs Committee members have been meeting with public officials recently to represent your interests.

San Francisco Board of Supervisors member, Jane Kim, spoke to BOMA members recently at San Francisco's City Hall. Representatives from Urban Solutions joined us as well to detail that organization's efforts to strengthen underserved neighborhoods in District 6 by supporting small businesses, job creation, diversity, and sustainability.


This meeting was held to update Supervisor Kim on the fast-paced commercial real estate market in San Francisco - specifically in her district. Proposition M , the Office Development Annual Limitation Program, was mentioned and Kim was receptive to our member's concerns. Even so, Kim aptly suggested that a larger conversation with all stakeholders would be necessary in the near-term to make sure that any amendments to the existing law were equitable.  

Meeting attendees informed Kim of the economic benefits for all of San Francisco, i.e., taxes and jobs generated, from our industry and from the tenants that lease space from BOMA building members.
Lastly, our members' effort to address an imminent labor shortage via the BOMA Foundation and our partnership with San Francisco State University was detailed.  The Foundation's effort to introduce underprivileged youth to the commercial real estate industry through our partnership with Juma Ventures was also discussed.

BOMA San Francisco members appreciate Supervisor Kim's time and are honored to be a resource for her constituents.
