Covid-era District 7 Participatory Budgeting now open

From District 7 Supervisor Myrna Melgar:

Participatory Budgeting (PB) is a democratic process in which community members propose projects and collectively decide how to spend part of a public budget. Former Supervisor Norman Yee launched the Participatory Budget initiative in 2013 and funded over 120 projects within District 7. Supervisor Melgar is committed to continuing to build strong communities and increasing civic participation through this initiative. We appreciate how engaged and invested District 7 residents have been in improving our neighborhoods and increasing quality of life for all who live and visit our District.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and ongoing efforts to recover and reopen our city, we are unable to engage in the traditional PB process during this budget cycle.

This year, in our commitment to honor the intent of PB and remain responsive to community needs and interest, we are launching a one-time Community Grants Initiative to support ongoing recovery and resiliency efforts under previous or existing PB projects that have successfully been through the community vetting process. We will not be able to accept new applicants for these grants due to the shortened selection process. We look forward to engaging in the full Participatory Budgeting process later this year as we plan for the next Budget cycle.

FUNDING

Grants awarded will range from $10,000 to a maximum of $25,000. A total of $250,000 will be awarded collectively under this Community Grants Initiative.

D7 Covid Update from Supervisor Yee – Oct 2020

October 15, 2020
Dear Friends and Neighbors, 

By now, you should have received your ballot for the November 2020 Election in the mail. It’s crucial we all vote not only at the national level for President and Vice President, but at the local level in our own districts. We need more equitable representation across the board at every level. Educate yourself about candidates and ballot measures to choose what is best for you and your family.I’ve heard from many of you about the Twin Peaks Auto Care lease extension and the St. Ignatius lights. Thank you to all who have shared their thoughts on these issues. I’ve heard you and will keep your comments in mind as these issues again come before the Board.

Today is the LAST DAY to fill out your 2020 Census. If you haven’t yet, please go to  my2020census.gov today to make sure SF gets the resources we need. The deadline is 11:59pm tonight.

And, don’t get complacent about COVID-19, please keep wearing your masks, washing your hands and watching your distance around others.

Sincerely,
Norman
