Investing in South City
Youth are taking action #4SouthCity. High school youth joined with community activities during the South San Francisco Downtown Station Area Plan process to advocate for the development of a healthier South San Francisco by creating more parks and transit options, growing the local economy and ensuring future prosperity and stability for all its residents. Students surveyed over 800 local residents about their rent increases and presented this information to the City Council at the public hearing. As one youth organizer put it, it’s time for the City to, “Invest not just into big business, but invest in people.” Find more about the South City Coalition and the Downtown Station Area Plan here.
