District 6 Focus at March 7, 2022 Redistricting Task Force Meeting

Supervisorial District 6 which encompasses South of Market (including Rincon Hill), the Tenderloin/Civic Center, and Treasure Island needs to get reconfigured as our high-density development has led to our District 6 population growing by +30.35% between the 2010 and 2020 Census to 103,564 residents whereas the target size is 79,545 residents.

Please attend the March 7, 2022 meeting of the San Francisco Redistricting Task Force in-person (mask required in City Hall regardless of vaccination status) at 5:30pm in City Hall, Room 408 or attend online:

Some community of interest considerations if you support keeping Rincon Hill, South Beach, and Mission Bay together in the next Supervisorial District map that includes them:

  • Our communities are significantly impacted by the Bay Bridge and Highway 280 traffic transitioning from 50 -70 MPH speeds to our high-density residential 25 MPH streets. Pedestrian safety infrastructure and traffic law enforcement are especially important in our neighborhoods.
  • Our communities rely upon good relationships between our Supervisor and the Port of San Francisco as our neighborhoods are adjacent to and include Port of San Francisco properties.
  • Our communities are significantly impacted by the regional event centers of Oracle Park and Chase Center or events like the San Francisco Marathon – adding to the traffic on roadways, utilization (or surges) on the public transit routes, and crimes of opportunity that 19,000 – 50,000 attendee events attract to our area.
  • Our communities have added thousands of units of below market rate affordable housing, but no new K-12 schools for the children of those families, very little in the way of new pubicly owned parks (mostly privately owned public open spaces like Yerba Buena Gardens, Salesforce Park, and the various office building smoker plazas). The desire and health need for public recreation and publicly owned parks unites us in Rincon Hill, South Beach, and Mission Bay.
  • Our communities are subjected to second class consideration for Public Works cleaning services – forcing us to form our own Community Benefit Districts and charge ourselves a property assessment tax that is in addition to the tax we pay for funding Public Works in order to get the clean streets traditionally residential neighborhoods take for granted.

There is a very short time left for your voice to be heard. Please speak up now!
